The Nacogdoches Parks and Recreation Department is holding this event on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at Lakeside Park from 9 am to 12 pm. The park has a small lake, and it will be fully stocked for the event by Texas Parks and Wildlife.

In the past, they have put thousands of trout in the lake just days before the Kid Fish for children ages 1-16 years old to catch. There will be two age divisions and awards in categories like first fish, largest trout, and heaviest stringer.

Nacogdoches Parks And Recreation Kids Fish Saturday, January 21st

This body of water at 4800 Pearl Street at Lakeside Park is right off North Street and conveniently located behind Big Lots and close to Wal-Mart. You must bring your own fishing gear, so it's handy to have stores that sell it so close in case you need to pick something up before the start of the event.
