Williamson County is hosting Learn to Fish Day in the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, located at 3005 CR 175, Leander, Texas on Saturday, March 30, 2019, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Children of all ages will be able to spend time learning various fishing tips and techniques from local experts. The Learn to Fish Day event is free and open to the public.
All activities are in preparation for the day’s objective -- to catch and release a fish. Angler hopefuls will be guided through learning stations that emphasize the use of basic tackle, appropriate bait selection, knot tying, boat casting, conservation ethics, and general outdoor/water safety. Additional activities such as “backyard bass” will also help participants hone their fishing skills.
With all the planned activities, please allow at least an hour or more to fully enjoy the event. We recommend an early arrival to gain the most from the program. Fishing poles and tackle will be provided so please leave personal fishing gear at home. We suggest wearing loose, comfortable clothing, a hat or visor, and shoes other than flip flops. The use of insect repellent is advised along with sun block.
