No one is too young to learn to fish in East Texas.

Once a year, the City of Pittsburg and Texas Parks and Wildlife sponsor a fishing event just for kids.

The City Park Pond on Texas Street is stocked with enough winter trout to provide hours of fishing fun. Kid's Fishing Day is the last Saturday in February and is open to children ages 16 and under.

The event is free and  this year has been rescheduled due to expected bad weather. It is now  scheduled on March 2nd for 10:00- Noon at Fair Park.

The UT Health Helicopter will land in the park for the kids to see up close and UT Health community volunteers will  be there to support the event !

Medals for all the kids who participate provided by First National Bank! Plaques for largest Fish are donated by Holly McGraw.
