Get Hooked on Fishing at Keller’s Free Fishing for Fun
There’s nothing more fun than watching a kid fish, especially for their first time, so we’re rounding up our fishing poles and getting ready for Fishing for Fun in Keller! You provide the gear; they provide the corn bait for the trout. Fisherman may not be able to catch a fish, but they’ll be able to win door prizes and drawings. Just remember to get your license and remember the limit is 5 per day!
