Fun Fish is right around the corner and if you plan on attending Fun Fish this year here are all the things you need to know before you go!

What is Fun Fish?

Fun Fish is a FREE kid fishing event for children ages 3-16 hosted by the Water Oriented Recreation District of Comal County (WORD). Fun Fish is an educational and fun event that gives children and their families the opportunity to spend a day outdoors learning about fishing, water safety, and more! This year, Fun Fish will be held on Sunday, February 23, 2020, at Camp Huaco Springs in New Braunfels (4150 River Road). Texas Parks and Wildlife stocks 2,000 trout the morning of the event to help make your child’s fishing experience a little easier. Not too keen on fishing? No problem! There will be local organizations with fun, interactive education stations for your child to enjoy throughout the duration of the event!
