Special Family Fishing Night

On my weekly TV outdoor report, I’ll be inviting you and your family to come to come join me for a fun, special Game and Parks/WOWT 6 Family Fishing Night event at Lake Halleck in Papillion, NE next week.


It’ll take place from 6-8 p.m. next Thursday, July 9th at the lake which is located just a quarter mile to the east of the intersection of Washington and Lincoln Streets in downtown Papillion. It’s nice!


Look below. You’ll note that we at Game and Parks provide the fishing tackle and bait as well as fishing instruction.

The Game and Parks Family Fishing Nights offer a wonderful opportunity for you and your family to sharpen those rusty fishing skills, learn to fish and explore the world of fish and fishing!


Get more information about this special family fishing night on my Weekly Outdoor Report which airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT-TV/Channel 6 Thursday evening at 6 p.m. CST during the station’s sportscast with my good friend and sports director Ross Jernstrom (a.k.a. Rossy).  Like last year, we’ll be broadcasting LIVE from the event that evening.


Remember, if you are unable to view the live broadcast of the outdoor report, video replays of it can be seen after the initial cast here. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. In addition, Channel 6 runs The Weekly Outdoor Report on Saturdays later in the station’s hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. Rossy, Jeff Packer, and I thank you for watching!
