Come on out to Reeve Lake this Sunday for Youth Fishing Day. Texas Junior Anglers will be on hand with bait and loaner gear. This is always a good way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. I enjoy it because of the kids that participate. The smiles on the kids’ faces make the day worthwhile.

Prizes will be awarded to the 1st and 2nd place longest fish in each age group. Age groups are 6 and under, 7 to 11-year-olds, and 12 to 16-year-olds. They also have random drawings of sporting goods and fishing equipment throughout the afternoon.
