Want to go fishing or take your kids fishing, but don't know where to start?
Go Fish! Learn-to-Fish Events at Texas State Parks are a great way to get the whole family outdoors, and to brush up on your fishing skills. Check out the Go Fish! calendar to find a Go Fish! event in your area or visit http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/gofish/index.phtml to learn more. Hands on learning and equipment are provided!
Remember, you do not need a fishing license to fish in Texas state parks, but when you are fishing outside a state park, anyone over the age of 17 needs a fishing license. Find where you can purchase a license near you or purchase online. To find fishing spots near you check out this great map!
Check out the video above to help you get the gear basics in hand before your next outing.
