FANNIN, Texas – As part of National Fishing and Boating Week 2017, the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA) and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) invite families to the 24th Annual Kidfish Tournament Saturday, June 3, 2017, from 7 a.m. to noon at Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir, 365 Coleto Park Road, located off Highway 59 between Victoria and Goliad.

 The registration fee for the event, which is open to all youth between ages 2 and 16, will be included in the regular park entry fee. All participants must register.

“Our event targets both young people and adults to help them discover the joy of fishing and further develop an appreciation for our lakes, rivers, and the wildlife that live in and around them,” said Michael Stanford, ranger at Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir.

“We are pleased to have the continued help of Academy Sports and Outdoors as the major corporate sponsor. With partner donations, we will be able to award prizes for the heaviest stringer in each of four age groups: 2-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years, and 13-16 years,” Stanford said, adding, “We also will recognize the overall largest fish, largest bass, largest catfish, and largest crappie. And, prizes for the smallest perch will be given to age group 2-6 years and 7-9 years.”
