New Youth Fishing Program Starts Today

Youth fishing program 4

The Branson Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce a new summer youth catch and release fishing program to encourage younger generations to participate in a lifelong hobby and sport, even if they don’t have access to fishing equipment.

The Branson Parks and Recreation Department has partnered with the Missouri Department of Conservation to stock the ponds at Eiserman Park, located adjacent to the Branson Community Center at 201 Compton Drive, with 150 hybrid bluegill fish. Fishing poles and tackle boxes are also available for use at no cost during the hours of operation at the Branson Community Center.

“This program will not only provide a great opportunity for the entire community to enjoy the benefits of fishing, but it is also part of our efforts to revitalize Eiserman Park. We are excited about our partnership with the Missouri Department of Conservation and the benefits it is bringing to our community through, first, providing Archery for youth and now fishing,” said Branson Parks and Recreations Director, Cindy Shook.

Children ages 15 and under will be allowed to fish the ponds during designated hours. The ponds will be open for fishing on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 8-11 a.m. and 4-7 p.m.

For questions regarding this youth catch and release program, call the Branson Community Center at (417) 337-8510.
