“Just for Kids Fishin’ Day” Offers Free Family Fun
Lunch, Loaner Poles, Bait and Tackle Provided

SEGUIN, Texas – Area children and their families will again have a free opportunity to learn fishing techniques and put their skills to work at the 2nd Annual Just for Kids Fishin’ Day on April 11.

“Last year was our first time to hold this event and the response was tremendous,” said Parks and Recreation Program Coordinator Chandra Jobb. “We had 175 kids plus their parents and guardians show up to fish, have lunch and enjoy quality time together.”

The free event is Saturday, April 11 at the Irma Lewis Seguin Outdoor Learning Center, located at 1865 E. Hwy 90. Activities get underway at 9 a.m. and wrap up at noon. Two on-site classes will be offered. “Basics of Fishing” will be held at 9:30 a.m. and “Advanced Fishing Techniques” at 10:30 a.m.

Loaner poles will be provided on a first come, first served basis. If a participant has their own pole, we suggests bringing it. Bait, tackle and lunch will also be provided. All fishing will be-catch-and release. Drawings for prizes will be held throughout the morning. The recommended age group for this event is 5-12. Registration will be held on-site and forms are available on the Parks and Recreation page on the City of Seguin website or by clicking here. Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

The event is sponsored by the Seguin Parks and Recreation Department, Texas Game Warden Association, Texas Parks and Wildlife Association and Irma Lewis Seguin Outdoor Learning Center. For more information, call (830) 401-2480.
