Fishing Has No Boundaries will return to the El Dorado Lake and State Park Saturday and Sunday.


Fishing Has No Boundaries will return to the El Dorado Lake and State Park Saturday and Sunday.

It is open to youth and adults who have a handicap, including some who are part of Flinthills Services.

Board Member Richard McAllister said the goal is to “get them out and let them know they can do things. Just because they are handicap or learning disabled, they can still do a lot of stuff that everybody can do. It’s more to help them.”

The event begins at about 8 a.m. Saturday with breakfast, then fishing will get underway.

At noon they will hold a lunch and pass out prizes for first, second and third place on all categories of fish.

Action will begin again on Sunday with breakfast at 8 a.m. and another lunch at noon.

People can attend one or both days of the event and they can register the day of the event.

For participants between 16 and 64, if they don’t have a fishing license, they get a group deal so they do not have to get individual licenses.

The event is held at Bluestem Point at the boat marina. There will be signs out directing people to the activities.

McAllister said every year they try to find people with boats to take the participants out fishing. In addition, Frontier Refinery and others provide gasoline for the boats.

“It’s a lot of help,” McAllister said.

Others donate prizes and volunteer to help with the event.
