    Hello fellow Boc members. I am in OK but have a good friend that lives in the Fort Worth area wanting to take his kids on their first fishing trip. He is not an avid fisherman and his kids have been begging for him to take them. I was hoping someone might know a good area around Fort Worth they can go and catch some fish. They do not have a boat and not looking for record fish hear. Just somewhere he can be a fishing hero to the kids for the day. Thanks, in advance for any ideas you might have.

    It is a couple of hours drive from Ft. Worth, but the Texas freshwater fish hatchery in Athens is an excellent place to take kids. Large aquariums etc to see but they have large pond for kids to fish in. They supply poles and bait. Fun day for everyone.

    That is a great idea. I don't know if he will want to drive that far. But he might! Thanks:roll_eyes:

    Benbrook Lake in S/West Ft Worth is a good place for kids. Can bank fish. Or, there is a barge you can fish inside or outside. :wink:
