Take Advantage of National Go Fishing Day in Cedar HillPosted on
It’s the perfect gift, and you don’t even have to wrap it. We celebrate National Go Fishing Day and Father’s Day on June 18 this year. Put them together, and treat Dad to quality time at Cedar Hill State Park. You’ll be in good company with dedicated anglers from all across Cedar Hill, TX. Storage units are opening up, and boats are ramping out as we officially launch summer fishing fun.
Fish with History
In the early 1800s, cowboys driving cattle along the Chisholm Trail passed through this area. Chances are good they never crossed paths with our local Plesiosaurus morgani. The 50-foot sea lizard was probably extinct by then, but you can visit its fossils over at the Cedar Hill Museum. But when you cast your line into the state park waters of Joe Pool Lake, you’re always fishing with Texas history as a backdrop.
Plan the Day
Do you and your father favor flies, spoons, or jigs? You can find perfect locations for all three angling styles at Joe Pool. With more than 100 miles of shoreline, fly fishing is easy. Jetties get you out there for distance casting, and the deeper waters are ideal for bottom-action jigging. If you need any more inspiration, consider these local records:
- A monster 16-pound, 33-inch blue catfish landed in January 2012
- The lake’s biggest bass at 14.45 pounds landed in April 2008
- One of the region’s largest grass carp, weighing in at 32 pounds landed in June 1997
Surprise Your Dad
When you keep your gear handy, National Go Fishing Day can happen anytime you’re in the mood. If you’re still crowding the garage with tackle boxes and poles, think about another great Father’s Day gift. Surprise your father with self storage that you both can share. Climate-controlled storage units are affordable. You can lease a drive-up unit for the boat, and you don’t have to worry about cold-weather storage when our North Texas winter blows back in. It’s the kind of space that fits you both – and saves the garage too.
We’re Just Down the Road
A day spent fishing is always better when you share it with Dad. It’s easier too when you keep your gear handy in convenient Storage Choice self storage. Our Cedar Hill, TX facilities are located on South Clark Road just a few miles southeast of the lake, so park your boat, rods, and reels with us. Your crowded garage will thank you, and so will your dad.
