LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Longview's Partner's in Prevention hosted the 20th annual Kids Fishing Day at the Teague Park pond today. More than 2,000 rainbow trout were stocked in the lake, and complimentary corn baits were provided. Kids ages 3 to 16 took part and tell us it was nice to cast a line so close to home.

"It's a good day to come here get out of the house go fishing," said 14 year old fisherman Aaron Deslatte. "You know there here so its just fun to come out he and try for them , have a little fun on the weekend."

Kids went for prizes by catching specially tagged trout. Texas Parks and Wildlife made sure all anglers were equipped with loaner fishing poles.
