This is an incredible event that is going on for its 9th year. "Vamos a Pescar, Let’s go fishing!" This annual event uses fishing as a way to bring families together.

The event will be held Saturday, August 12, 2017, from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Buddy Holly Lake, located at N. University and Cesar Chavez Drive.

According to the event organizers, participants are urged to pre-register:

We do require:

  • That you register.
  • That all adults be accompanied by a child to fish at this event, and vice versa.
  • That you come ready to have fun and relax.

For grant purposes, we ask that participants provide: gender, ethnicity, and age.

Please have your group meet at the same time to check in. Pre-registered can check in as early as 5 a.m. However, if members of your group will not be able to check in at the same time, please consider having them register separately at 6 a.m. Also, no additions can be made to preregistrations until 6 a.m.

This is a non-competitive family event. The prize is having fun, bonding with family, creating memories.

From Los Hermanos Familia:

Together, in 2009, they coordinated the “Vamos a Pescar” (Let’s Go Fishing) Fishing event to bring dads together with their children/families. The event was deemed to be free, no license, no registration fee, no cost for lunch – as to not hinder families, or discourage their participation in the event. The event was a hit and drew 1,800 participants. Time with family is precious… and our event was created to encourage families to value that time, as well as the sport of fishing,” said Frank Garcia, event Co-Chair/Co-Founder.
