On Saturday, the annual Small-Fry Fishing Tournament will be held at the Stilling Basing at Spring Canyon in the Lake Meredith National Recreation Area.
The Small-Fry Fishing Tournament is an annual event which promotes the sport of fishing while encouraging good clean family fun.
This event is a wonderful fun-filled opportunity for families to share in one of the best recreational activities available in the Texas Panhandle.
There is no entrance fee, and youth of all income levels are invited to participate.
Last year over eighty children participated in the tournament.
The Stilling Basin will be stocked with fish and closed to the general public until after the tournament.
Registration for the tournament will start at 8:00 a.m., with the days activities expected to conclude around 2:00 p.m.
Age groups will be from 6-8 years, 9-11 years, and 12-14 years, with prizes awarded in each age category.
An adult must accompany the participants.
Schedule of events:
8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. - Registration

As in past years, support from local businesses and individuals has allowed the Small-Fry Fishing Tournament Association to put on the tournament with no cost to the children.
