Dust off the rods and reels, it is Junior Fishing Day at the Live Oak Park Lakeside!  Children ages 13 and younger may join us for fishing on June 6th from 7:00-11:00 a.m.  Live Oak residents will be granted FREE admission to this event (with official proof of residency), and non-residents will have a $2 entry fee.  This fun filled morning will grant children the opportunity to catch a few catfish and win a prize or giveaway.  You are encouraged to bring your own fishing equipment, however children without a fishing rod may check one out on site on a first come, first served basis.  Adult supervision is required for young children; however adults may not fish until the event concludes.  Since June 3, 2017 is National Fishing Day, a fishing license is not required for anyone on this day only!

This event is sponsored by the Northeast Kiwanis Club, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and City of Live Oak.
