Youth Fishing Event Carrollton
Carrollton’s Parks & Recreation Department will host a free youth fishing event for children age 16 and under. Registration will take place the morning of the event; there is no pre-registration. The Josey Ranch Park Pond will be generously stocked with adult catfish.
Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Josey Ranch Park Pond, 1440 Keller Springs Road
Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the children who catch the longest and second longest fish in three age categories: 6 and under, 7-11, and 12-16. The first Saturday in June is designated as a Free Fishing Day by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), so everyone can come out and have fun; no license necessary! It is recommended that children bring their own equipment; however, loaner rods, reels, bait, and tackle will be provided to those who need them as supplies are available. There will be volunteers on-site to help educate the youth on baiting a hook, casting, and answering any fishing questions. For more information, call 972-466-9816 or visit cityofcarrollton.com/events
