The Rowlett Parks and Recreation Department is proud to once again host Kid Fish! Community Park Pond will be stocked with 500 pounds of adult catfish prior to the event.
Prizes will be awarded to “First Fish Caught” and “Longest Fish Caught” in the following age groups: 0-4 years old, 5 to 9 years old, and 10 to 14 years old.
A fishing license (for kiddos under 17 years of age) or registration is not required for this event. We are asking that all participants practice catch and release. Bring your own fishing tackle, bait, and lawn chairs. All fishing must be done from the banks only. The Award ceremony will be held promptly at 12:05 PM at the pavilion!
