SAN ANTONIO – CPS Energy hosted its 24th annual Kids Fish Day at Calaveras Lake Saturday.

Employee volunteers teamed up with 40 children from Boysville, a children’s shelter, for a day of fishing and other outdoor activities.

Every year, CPS Energy partners with a nonprofit to provide kids an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and experience the sport of fishing, a news release said.

For the event, a cove near the Calaveras Lake Pier was filled with 500 catfish donated by Texas Parks and Wildlife.

The Fin Addict Angler Foundation provided rods, reels, and tackle boxes for the Boysville guests.

Fish caught during the event were later returned to the lake.
