Kid’s Fishing Day started 21 years ago as a partnership between the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the City of Longview Parks and Recreation Department. Currently, City of Longview Partners in Prevention has partnered with Texas Parks and Wildlife and Sportsman Bass to host the event in order to introduce city kids to fishing sport.
