“Trick-A-Trout” – The Trick-A-Trout Kid Fish is a great opportunity for first time anglers to try the sport of fishing. Because only kids up through age 16 will be allowed to fish for the first three hours, they will have a chance to hone their fishing skills.

Please bring your own fishing gear and bait. There will be no concessions at the park, so bring your own drinks and snacks. Everyone is encouraged to keep what they catch since trout cannot survive when water temperatures rise in the spring. This event is rain or shine so everyone is encouraged to be prepared for the weather. 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Frisco Commons, 8000 McKinney Road.
