Kid Fishing Rodeo

Posted: Updated:
The Kid Fishing Rodeo, presented by the Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association took place Saturday morning at the fishing pond off of Southwest Parkway.

The Fishing Rodeo offered awards in four age groups for youth 12-years old and younger to see who could capture either the smallest or the biggest fish.

“Some of the kids fishing here today, it is actually their first time to fish. For some of them it’s their opportunity to get that first fish of a lifetime. At that point it’s not the size of the fish that matters, it’s the idea that they felt the pull on their line,” said Larry Carr, President of the Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association.

Our current drought has caused many events like these to be canceled, but Carr feels fortunate enough to be able to have the Kid Fishing Rodeo Happen.
