Peavine Pinion Pool in Buford Park will be the place to be next Saturday if you’re a kid.
The little pond behind Hopkins County Regional Civic Center will be full of youth tossing a line, and enjoying an afternoon of family fun and snacks.
It’s all part of the annual Larry Buster Memorial Sulphur Springs Kids’ Trout Fishing Day, sponsored by Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries Division, the city of Sulphur Springs, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Kiwanis Club of Sulphur Springs, local merchants and individual contributors.
The Kids’ Trout Fishing Day will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. Feb. 2. Kids of all ages are invited to bring their rods, reels and favorite bait, along with an adult, to Peavine Pinion Pool. Kirk Pratas with TPWD Inland Fisheries District 3B in Tyler notes that whole kernel corn, Berkley power eggs, trout bait and small spinners are known favorites of the rainbow trout. TPWD stocks the pond prior to each kid fish with 2,079 rainbow trout.
In addition to loads of fond memories, kids can enjoy hot dogs served by the Kiwanis Club of Sulphur Springs and soft drinks others have provided. Door prizes will be drawn at various intervals during the four hour event, so participating children are encouraged to sign in and get their name in the pot.
Adults who are actively helping kids fish are exempt from normal licensing requirements during Kids’ Trout Fishing Day because it’s a TPWD event. All others will be required to have a freshwater fishing license as usual. While there is no minimum size limit on rainbow trout, a five fish per person per day bag limit will be enforced.
