Kids Trout Fishing Day a Huge Success
The annual Kids Trout Fishing day is underway, and by all account is a huge success. A jacket is reccomended equipment for everyone. Nothing more will be needed as poles, bait, food, drink and encouragement will be provided free of charge from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm February 7th. Local retailer Atwood’s donated to the cause as well as our local Ocean Spray facility. Brannan’s Bass Shop from Powderly, TX heard about the event as well and stopped by to donate lures and equipment.
Peavine Pinion Pond has been stocked with around 1000 Rainbow Trout. Kids can fish with parents without a fishing license until 2:00pm today. Remaining trout will be available for anyone who has a current fishing license. This event brings family out to the park, and provides an opportunity not always available. Without the Kiwanis Club, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the City Of Sulphur Springs this event would not be possible.
