“The opportunity given to the Service Members this weekend was astounding. Many non-profits and other organizations attempt to contribute to Service Members, your Program “Take A Warrior Fishing” actually contributed and influenced.” – Warrior, Canyon Lake, TX

This Take a Warrior Fishing event is designed to support military personnel and their families, specifically targeting persons assigned to Warrior Transition Commands, by creating an adaptive, community-based outdoor recreation experience through the sport of fishing. Participants will have the opportunity to spend a morning on the water targeting a variety of species of fish and will return to shore for a BBQ lunch.

All equipment is provided to participants and licenses are not needed.
