Kids can fish for free this Saturday, October 14 at Ascarate Lake.
The Ascarate Fishing Club will host another Kid Fishing Day Tournament from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m at Ascarate Lake.
El Paso County Parks officials say the lake will be restocked with 1,800 large channel catfish, which will arrive Thursday evening, just in time for Saturday’s tournament. The event is free and open to the public. Children will be provided fishing poles, lunch, and prizes, including trophies for different categories.
Admission to the park is $2 per vehicle. Everyone over the age of 17 requires a fishing license to fish at the lake. Fishing will be closed for 48 hours after the lake is stocked and will resume Saturday morning.
