Children and adults will enjoy hours of excitement fishing at this portable fishing pond, stocked with adult fish that range in size from 1 to 6 pounds. These fish are willing to give a hardy tug on the line! The Catch Tank is staffed by Texas Junior Angler Personnel who will supply rods, reels, and bait, as well as assist participants with this catch-and-release fun. Special equipment for handicapped youth will be available.
Texas Junior Anglers is a non-profit organization that aims to get children of all ages exposed to fishing. Fishing is a lifetime sport that builds self-esteem and provides a positive outlet for our youth. Involving children in a sport that provides equality for race, gender, age, and physical/mental abilities provides a means of relaxation and a time for family communication, while encouraging a lifetime enjoyment of the Texas outdoors.
Visitors won’t want to miss one of the Edzoocational Animals Shows when they take a break from fishing. Noah’s Way’s Edzoocational Animals Show is an interactive show teaching children about animals from around the world. Children can hold a Coatimundi, play with a Prairie Dog, touch a giant Sulcatta Tortoise, learn about Cockatoos, and have the experience of a lifetime. Show times are 11 a.m., and 1, 3, and 5 p.m., in the H-E-Buddy Land children’s area.
