Kids in Texoma Spend the Afternoon Fishing

On Saturday the Wichita Falls Parks and Recreation Department hosted the hook line and sinker kids fishing rodeo.

Kids 16 and under had the chance to test their angling skills and win prizes.  Anglers were divided into categories based on age.  Prizes were awarded for both the largest and smallest trout.  Organizers say this has been a much-anticipated event in the falls for decades.

"We've been doing this for over 20 years, so this is a Texoma tradition that people look forward too," said Amy McKim, Program Coordinator with the Parks and Rec. Department.

The fishing rodeo was held at Plum Lake next to the Wichita Falls softball complex on Sheppard Access Road.
