The City of Odessa held its annual 'Take me Fishing' event at Comanche Trail Park on Saturday.

Every year, the city and local organizations fill the pond with fish to allow families to go out and cast their fishing rods.

According to Cori Branscum with the City of Odessa Parks and Recreation Department, events like ‘Take me Fishing’ give Odessans the chance to grow the community.

"We want to provide free or low-cost events as often as possible. Our goal is to get people out in the parks out of their houses and into the sunshine have a good time. The focus is family and just providing an opportunity for them to enjoy,” said Branscum.

The City of Odessa wants to remind West Texans to always follow the rules and regulations while fishing at the city ponds.
