The bash begins at 10 a.m. Wednesday June 3 at pavilion # 3 at Wes Watkins Reservoir (2200 S Arena Rd) with representatives from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation leading a fishing clinic. Learn to tie knots and fishing basics. Fishing poles and lunch are provided, but supplies are limited so registration is required in advance.

This year’s Summer Reading theme is “Every Hero Has a Story,” and special programming for the summer runs throughout June and July, with activities set for children, teens, and adults.
