Hundreds of children reeled in some fun today at a Wichita Falls lake.
And that fun came in the form of a fishing contest.
Young anglers competed in the Kids Fishing Rodeo at Plum Lake.
This annual event was made possible by the city Parks and Recreation Department and Texas Parks and Wildlife.
The state agency stocked the lake with 800 trout.
And after baiting and casting their lines kids waited patiently to see who could hook the largest trout and reel in a prize.
"It's a skill that you can use for the rest of your life so, there is no reason not to, not to try it," said Amy McKim, the Wichita Falls Parks and Recreation Coordinator.
Those who tried their hand in today's fishing rodeo competed in three age divisions.
But there's still plenty of fish just waiting to be caught.
So, city officials say you can grab your poles and head to Plum Lake to engage in this popular sport.
They just offer this reminder make sure you're age 16 or older and have the proper fishing license.
