Learn to Fish!

Learning to fish is like riding a bicycle. Once your learn how easy and fun it is, you will never forget! Whether you stand in the river or on the side of a pond with a can of worms, or use a boat with state-of-the-art equipment, fishing can be enjoyed by all ages and all skill levels.  Even beginner anglers can learn how fun and relaxing fishing can be, and learn life skills in the process. The goal for learning to fish and for our Pond in Odessa is to provide a recreational opportunity and enhance the quality of life available to all Odessa Residents.
