Who We Are



The Wish To Fish Foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our many sponsors for their contributions which make these trips possible.
 We could not do it without them!


About Us

The “Wish to Fish Foundation” caters to children that have been diagnosed with a life threatening disease or been involved in a life threatening situation. The foundation with the help of our terrific sponsors bring the child, siblings, and parents to Lake Fork for a fun filled day on this great reservoir at no cost to the family. All meals, snacks, tackle, bait and lodging are furnished. The family is then taken fishing on a 26-foot tritoon boat to fish for any species that will bite the hook and escorted by two 9-1-1 chase boats in case of emergency.

No joy is greater felt than that of a child’s laughter while enjoying catching a fish. If that child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, the child’s laughter increases the joy tenfold. This is the reason members of “The Wish to Fish Foundation” feel blessed with each wish we grant.
