Free Family Fishing Day in Beaumont

Get hooked on fishing this Saturday! Join Big Thicket National Preserve rangers in Beaumont for a morning of free fishing activities for the whole family. If you’ve ever wanted to try fishing, but aren’t sure where to start, this event is for you!

Rangers who are certified in angler instruction will teach participants basic fishing skills, including how to tie knots, fishing limits, and how to cast your line. You can borrow our fishing gear and see what’s biting or bring your own gear to use. Kids can also get a free activity book and earn a special Junior Angler badge.


Stop by the event this Saturday, August 6, between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm at the Lower Neches Valley Authority (LNVA) fishing ponds on Bigner Road in Beaumont. There will be signs on the road to direct you.

Accessible features of the event include ASL interpreters, flat spaces, sensory kits, large print, braille, audio description, ALDs, and rangers trained to work with individuals with different disabilities.

Participants do not need a fishing license and registration is not required. We highly encourage you to bring water, sun protection, and closed-toe shoes.
