Another Great Year for Fun Fish

WORD’s 16th Annual Fun Fish event was a huge success with over 800 children in attendance. Kids from all over Comal County came out to Camp Hueco Springs on Sunday, February 26 to enjoy a day of free fishing, t-shirts, and hot dogs. Families spent the day enjoying the outdoors, spending time together, and fishing for “the big one.” There were close to 3,000 fish stocked with 40 of them tagged for prizes. Over 380 fish were caught that day and anglers that caught a tagged fish received an instant $25 cash prize. Top anglers that received trophies for the longest fish are:
