N University Ave & Cesar E Chavez Dr
Lubbock, TX 79415
The “Vamos a Pescar, Let’s Go Fishing” Event – Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Buddy Holly Lake located on N. University and Cesar Chavez Drive…AND IT’S FREE!
Brought to you by Los Hermanos Familia a local nonprofit that uses fishing as a hook to bring families together. This event is organized by Los Hermanos Familia and Latino Lubbock Magazine.
The lake is stocked with hungry catfish, and no one is required to have a fishing license on this day and during this time.
All children up to 17 years old must be accompanied by an adult – that’s the purpose of the event – to bring families together.
Families are encouraged to prepare for 100 plus degree weather elements – bring water, shade, sunscreen, etc. However, always prepare for rain, as this is Lubbock and you never know what you’re gonna get, LOL!
Bring snacks and beverages, and pretty much anything for a comfortable fishing day. Bring your lucky fishing rod and your special bait.
Lunch will be provided for registered participants (only with the ticket provided at check-in).
T-shirts will be available on-site for a $5 donation. Lots of outdoor activities relative to fishing, and family fun.
This event was sparked by the last request to go fishing with the entire family that was filled by co-founder Frank Garcia, whose father made a day before his death.
While his dad was a loving and dedicated father, Frank said that often the demands as a farmer would prevent his dad from being a part of family outings and activities.
The death of his father impacted the family severely, as his death was sudden. As such this event encourages families to spend and enjoy time together.
All participants must PREREGISTER at https://www.loshermanosfamilia.org/vamos-a-pescar-let-s-go-fishing or www.letsgofishinglubbock.com , or www.letsgofishinglubbock.com . Onsite registration will be held beginning at 5:30 a.m.
