Casting for young fishing enthusiasts…

Today was a beautiful Spring morning to be on the trail at Ladybird Lake near Lou Neff Point. The runners and bikers were out in full force, and so were the fishers…well, one fisherman at least. But, Keith Miller from Waco hopes to change that soon. He is on a quest to raise awareness about the benefits of the great outdoors for the younger generation. Jim Swift and I visited with him as he cast his lure among the reeds in Barton Creek waiting for that elusive bass to bite. He’ll incorporate social media to get the word out and to track his progress on a “year long fishing trip”. Watch his story tonight at 6pm on KXAN Austin News and later online at
