El Paso Kids Can Fish for Free Saturday at Ascarate Lake Kid Fish Derby
If you're looking to spend some quiet bonding time with your child, consider taking him or her to the next Kid Fish Derby at Ascarate Park.
And a lack of fishing experience or gear isn't a problem, either. Fishing poles and bait will be provided for registered children to use during the event.
The Ascarate Fishing Club is hosting the free fishing event for kids ages 3 - 16 this Saturday, June 11, and its members will happily teach kids fishing basics.
Just take along a cap, sun screen, bug spray, water, a camping chair or two, and your driver license to check out a pole and you're all set.
The county did a catfish drop in the big lake recently, so chances are pretty good your child will get a few nibbles and bites.
If not from catfish than maybe he or she will reel in a large mouth bass, sun perch, carp, or one of the other types of fish you'll generally find in the lake. Either way, it's bound to be a huge thrill.
