Fish-o-ree

Baytown Nature Center (6213 Bayway Dr. Baytown, TX)

The fish-o-ree is for Cub Scouts, families and friends thinking about joining Cub Scouts. Cub Scouts love to fish. At the fish-o-ree, Cub Scouts will work knot tying, fish identification, angler education, water safety, and of course fishing. Texas Parks and Wildlife will provide informative sessions for Scouts. Scouts will compete for distance and accuracy. Parent/Guardians must have a fishing license to help the scout fish.

Rules

  2. All Cub Scouts must have a parent or guardian with him at all times. No exceptions!
  3. All fish must be caught with rod only. Only one rod or pole per Cub Scout. Scouts must furnish their own rod, pole, tackle and net, if desired.  Hint:  use hook #10.
  4. Parents/Guardians may not touch the rod & reel while it is in the water. Parents/guardians may only help very young Scouts, if absolutely necessary, but the Scouts should do most of the work. This is a “boy event.”
