For the second year, our Fish-Off will be held in partnership with the Friends of Woodland Park’s Happy Trails and Hot Dogs Day.
Both events will be held on Saturday June 2, 2017 at Woodland Park.
Fish-Off trophies will be awarded to “Little Anglers” (children 12 or under) and “Big Anglers” (anyone 13 and over) for the Biggest, Ugliest and Most Unusual fish caught by both groups.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the tent at Woodland Park. Weigh-in and judging will begin at 11 a.m. with judging announcements at 12:30 p.m. Entry fees are a suggested donation of $5 per family/group of five, or free with $10 White Oak Bayou Association annual membership.
