Free fishing classes

Texas Parks & Wildlife is hosting free fishing classes to help encourage kids to spend more time outdoors. The program called “Go Fish” teaches the basics through fun, hands-on activities. All the equipment is provided. The kids also have a chance to win some prizes. Learn more about the program here. To see a list of the upcoming locations go here.

This is one of those free fishing events: Each June, the City of Pflugerville partners with the KidFish Foundation, Inc to offer a free, outdoor fishing opportunity for kids.  Children age 16 and under are invited to attend this year's event on Saturday, June 1, 2013, from 9 a.m. - noon.  Registration will be held onsite. KidFish and Texas Parks and Wildlife have stocked additional fish in Lake Pflugerville to boost kids' fishing experience at the event. Head to the lake on June 1 to enjoy a morning of free fishing fun! For more information, visit the City of Pflugerville website. Click here for a map.

 Saturday, June 1st is National Trails Day. Dozens of state parks will offer guided nature hikes from short, family friendly hikes geared toward beginners to trecks of up to seven miles. Most of the National Trails Day state park events are at no extra charge, but regular Texas State Park entrance fees will apply. As always, children ages 12 and younger receive free park admission. To check park fees that apply to your favorite state park, visit: www.texasstateparks.org.
