Final Day For ‘After School Fishing’ In Wichita Falls
Today (September 18th) is the final day for the After School Fishing program through the Wichita Falls Parks and Rec. Kids ages 5-16 can go fishing in South Weeks Park and have all necessary items provided. It's a great opportunity to let a kid experience fishing, without the big investment. Here's the info from the parks and rec press release:
Today is the last day for After School Fishing, for kids ages 5 to 16, at South Weeks Park, located at Taft and Southwest Parkway. Fishing is from 4:30pm to 6:00pm and costs $3 for a first child and $2 for each additional child from the same household.
