FLATONIA, Texas—Pond Hopper Nation is gearing up for their 5th annual Teach A Child To Fish Day event on Lake Havasu, Arizona.

Teach A Child To Fish Day is a free, community-wide event aimed at inspiring the next generation of anglers by teaching children about fishing, boating and conservation. CEO, Albert Talafuse is more than excited to see this year’s attendees.

“Lake Havasu has consistently been a really big event for us,” Talafuse explained. “A big thank you to Anderson Toyota, Go Lake Havasu Tourism Bureau, McCoy Fishing Line, Bass Tackle Master, London Bridge Resort and Arizona State Parks for their continued support over the past five years. Teach A Child To Fish Days are possible because of their support.”

Sponsors like Anderson Toyota and Arizona State Parks are vital to Teach A Child A To Fish Day events; providing Pond Hopper Nation with financial support that contributes to the materials needed to teach families how to fish and also providing them with a fun and memorable experience while doing so. Lake Havasu State Park manager, Daniel Roddy, has high expectations for the fun coming to Lake Havasu.

“Arizona State Parks and Trails is thrilled to welcome Teach A Child to Fish back to Lake Havasu State Park,” Roddy said. “This is one of our favorite days every year as we get to see the joy as youngsters experience the thrill of outdoor recreation. We are always challenged to match the enthusiasm brought to the event by the multitude of volunteers and fishing professionals. This is one of those events that truly does offer something for every age."

Talafuse is right about Lake Havasu bringing in a big crowd, with over 300 kids registered for the event. Sharing the excitement with CEO Talafuse is professional fisherman, Roy Hawk, who will also be attending this year’s Lake Havasu event.

“I am super excited for the upcoming Teach a Child to Fish Day!” Hawk said. “Over the years we have seen hundreds of kids catch their first fish! Through Albert's dreams and some outstanding sponsors and volunteers we have put fishing rods in thousands of young enthusiasts. These youngsters are the future of our great sport, and we believe that if a child learns to Fish while they are young it will be something that will stick and enrich their lives.”

Teach a Child To Fish Day events provide families with unforgettable memories and simultaneously provides cities with a chance to get both tourists and members of the community involved. Mayor of Lake Havasu, Cal Sheehy, is looking forward to this opportunity, with Teach a Child To Fish Day returning to Lake Havasu.

“Lake Havasu City is excited to host the upcoming 5th Annual Teach A Child to Fish Day. Programs that engage our young citizens with opportunities to connect with nature are always welcome and we look forward to see smiles on the faces of our youth enjoying a day of fishing on beautiful Lake Havasu,” said Mayor Sheehy.

The much-anticipated event will take place at Lake Havasu State Park located at 699 London Bridge Rd, Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403, on April 17th from 9 am to 3 pm.
