WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - The Wichita Falls Parks and Recreation Division is partnering with Texas Parks and Wildlife to offer free after school fishing sessions.

The sessions will be on May 8, 10, 15, and 17 from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at South Weeks pond located at 2006 Southwest Parkway.

The sessions will be for kids ages 5-16. Those under 11 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
