First Kid Fishing Day A “Whopper”

DSC hosted its first ever Kid Fishing and Family Day on Saturday, July 13. Families with kids of all ages enjoyed a breezy day by Rock Creek Ranch’s private pond. Each kid got a free DSC hat, and was able to borrow fishing equipment provided by Denton County Game Wardens, with extra tackle. The bait in the form of hot dogs and live worms was provided by DSC. Lunch followed the morning of fishing and outdoor play, provided by The Hamburger Man in the air conditioned pavilion at Rock Creek.
The event could not have been possible without the assistance and dedication of the Texas Game Wardens. Denton County Warden David Spangler staffed the Operation Game Thief “Wall of Shame” trailer and answered many questions. A big Texas thank you him, as well as Ronnie Burnside at Rock Creek Ranch for opening his gorgeous venue for this event, to Warden Kyle Allison for his assistance setting up this event.
This event was a change of pace from the usual monthly meeting, and was created to engage members with young families by welcoming the entire family to spend time outside.
Prizes were awarded at the Kid Fishing and Family Day to youth who caught the Most Fish, the Biggest Fish, and the Smallest Fish. Kate took the lead for Most Fish with 10 catches. Wyatt won the Biggest Fish with a whopping 15.5-inch bass. Maddox took the Smallest Fish at 3.5 inches. The smiles were all the same size – extra large.
