People from across West Texas are at the State Park this week for spring break. Amber McElmurry, and her two kids, are visiting for the first time. They live in Midland, but traveled to San Angelo for the spring break holiday.
"Oh we loved it, we have enjoyed everything, the kids really just like running around and being able to be free, and not have fences and just play," says Amber McElmurry, who is visiting from Midland.
McElmurry is just one of more than several dozen families who were at the state park fishing. Its all part of their spring break activites.Recenlty the park added a fishing pond, which park officials say has been very popular.
"With the lake being dry and this water source being here, we were able to stock it and people have enjoyed it so its been stocked twice with trout and we have had a lot of people come in and take their limit each day," says Kurt Kemp, Park Superintendent.
Kurt Kemp is the Park Superintendent, and says they enjoy working with families, and teaching kids how to fish.
"Your running into a bunch of kids nowadays that don't know how to fish or how to hunt, so its just good to have programs like this, that get them introduced into programs, and then these activities. Some of them I guess from my generation learn from their grandparents or parents, and thats probably not as prevalent nowadays."
As for McElmurry, she says she looks forward to her next trip to the state park.
