Kids Need to Fish

Getting children outdoors and fishing can be life-changing. Research has shown what we have intuitively known all along; kids that are introduced to fishing at a young age gain a love for the outdoors, while improving their lives.

Message from the CEO/president

The FishAmericaNow Foundation is the home of KidsFishClubFishAmericaNow, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, partners with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department to teach kids how to fish. KidsFishClubs will be established in communities across America.

Families that fish together, stay together. Mom, dad, grandparents, interested adults—all are encouraged to be involved in a KidsFishClub. Training, fishing events, conservation education, outdoor projects, lots of fun, and much more. All come together in a KidsFishClub.”

And when he is old, he will not depart from it.
