Athens: Fireworks at the Fishery

July 4, 2013 - 5:00pm to 10:00pm

Even though the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center will be closed to regular visitation during the day, it will open at 5:00 p.m. with free admission for the fireworks show.

Visitors are encouraged to fish in the stocked casting pond while waiting for the fireworks, which will begin at dark.

No license is required to fish, and bait and tackle are furnished for free as long as supply lasts. Fishing ends approximately 30 minutes before the fireworks begin.
