Williamson County is hosting Learn to Fish Day in the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, 3005 CR 175, on Saturday, April 16, 2016, 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.
In promotion of area fishing, the County hopes to inspire youth and families to further engage in the great sport of fishing as a lifetime recreational activity.  No pre-registration is necessary.  Upon arrival at the park, all participants will be asked to complete a simple card to register for the activity.  
Williamson County’s Learn to Fish Day is funded through the donations of nearly a dozen private individuals and corporations.  Sponsors for this year’s event include: 
Prime Strategies, Cambrian, Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, K Friese + Associates, HNTB, CP&Y, HDR, Freese & Nichols, Chasco, McCreary, Veselka, Bragg & Allen, PC  (MVBA), Gorrondona & Associates, Inc., Dan Rogers Engineering.
For more information, please contact the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department at 512-943-1920, or the office of Precinct 2 Commissioner Cynthia Long at 512-260-4280.
