Lake Corpus Christi State Park has scheduled its 26th annual Kid Fish for Jan. 27th.

Five hourly sessions will be scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and run through 1 p.m.

Kids 5 to 12 will be allowed to fish for rainbow trout within a netted off area of the lake. About 2,200 fish will be stocked. Park entry fees will be waived for this free event, thanks to the Ed Rachal Foundation, H-E-B, and other area sponsors.

Children will be provided fishing rods, tackle and bait to use, and to keep. Lunch will be provided for all kid participants as well as numerous games and other activities throughout the day. Park employees will provide instruction, assistance and will fillet everyone's catch.

Fishing will be open to the public afterward. No fishing license is required within the park. Call (361) 547-2635.
