Uvalde National Fish Hatchery held a Boy Scout Fishing Tournament on June 9, 2012. Between 36 and 40 Boy Scouts registered for the event. We want to thank the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department for helping make this event successful. By the end of the derby 136 fish had been caught and their lengths recorded for the competition. For some, like Alejandro, it was their first time catching fish. Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Game Warden Henry Lutz was instrumental in Alejandro’s success as he coached Alejandro on how to cast, catch, and reel in a fish. And much to their mutual excitement, Alejandro caught two fish this very memorable day. After two hours of fishing the scouts enjoyed a lunch of hotdogs, drinks, chips, and cookies during the awards ceremony. The organizer of the tournament was extremely pleased with the successful outcome and stated that all the participants and guests had a great time.
