8-28-Williamson County KID-FISH-FUN Family Activity .Meet Clark Wendlandt (8a-1p)

Williamson County is hosting its own Learn to Fish event in the Southwest Regional Park, 3005 CR 175, in Leander on Saturday, August 28, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Children of all ages will be able to spend time learning various fishing tips and techniques from local experts.
Learn to Fish participants and families will enjoy exhibits from Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) and will be able to interact with Texas game wardens and other conservation professionals. Special guest, Clark Wendlandt, the 2009 Angler of the Year, will be available for a meet and greet opportunity and scheduled technique demonstrations at 9 and 11 a.m.
Angler hopefuls will be guided through learning stations that emphasize the use of basic tackle, appropriate bait selection, knot tying, boat casting, and water safety. Additional activities such as “backyard bass” will also help participants hone their fishing skills while also teaching them about basic guidelines that promote a conservation ethic for good fishermen. All activities are in preparation for the day’s objective; to catch (and release) fish.
With all the planned activities, one should allow at least an hour or more to fully enjoy the event.   Staff from the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department recommends an early arrival so participants can gain the most from the program.  Additional suggestions for a successful outing include wearing loose, comfortable clothing, a hat or visor, and water appropriate shoes rather than flip flops. The use of insect repellent is advised along with sun block and a supply of water to lessen the effects of the August heat.
Williamson County’s Learn to Fish Day is offered as part of the Take Me Fishing Grant recently awarded the parks department from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). In its promotion of area fishing activities, the county hopes to engage a minimum of 2,000 youth and families in recreational boating and fishing by April, 2011. They also will serve as a clearinghouse for cities within Williamson County who wish to hold their own events, so hopeful anglers should watch for future fishing opportunities.
The inaugural Learn to Fish Day event is free and open to the public.   No pre-registration is necessary. Upon arrival at the park, all participants will be asked to complete a simple card to register for the activity.  For more information, please contact the 2010 Learn to Fish Day sponsors Williamson County Parks and Recreation at 512-260-4283, or the office of Precinct 2 Commissioner Cynthia Long at 512-260-4280.

Dell Children's Hospital Fishing Event -August 20th

Press Release for the event.

For Immediate Release

Dell Children’s Medical Center Goes Fishing, AGAIN!

Austin, Texas (July 7, 2010) – Each summer, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas brings a week of summer camp activities to the young patients that otherwise couldn’t venture to one on their own. Last year’s camp was capped with an end of the week fishing event in which local anglers gathered in order to bring their passions to the kids. Set in the heart of Chris Roberts, his task was originally doubted by many, but agreed to from hospital coordinators.

"My passions are fishing and the idea the good Lord placed on my heart was one I knew would be a hit if I could get the hospital to let me do it.” – Chris Roberts

After a few dead end phone calls he didn’t let his plan fade. The hardest hurdle, he saw, had already been achieved by getting the hospital to agree.

“Chris contacted me with his ideas and I could hear the passion he had. That’s all I needed and I was all in! With the contacts I had in the industry and the passion and relentless efforts Chris had, everything fell together. I’m not sure who gained more from this event, us or them.” - Cody Ryan Greaney

The event has been set to take place again August 20, 2010 8am-Noon. The event will include a live fishing tank, kayaks, tournament bass boats, game warden, and various other outdoor related fishing games with prizes, trophies and most importantly the smiles!

“This year will be bigger and better… It has to be!” – Chris Roberts

Dell Children’s believes that improving the quality of life and health of children requires the prudent application of resources, as well as the support of the Central Texas community.

For more information, donations or help with your event contact Chris or Cody directly:
