OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — Oklahoma native and country music star Blake Shelton invited some foster children to go fishing with him, according to the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.

The fishing trip is part of the Fostering Outdoor Oklahoma Families partnership program. Shelton is a board director on the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation.

He invited several foster children to come fish in one of his Oklahoma farm ponds.

The lesson went further than fishing, the children also learned how to fillet their catches, then they had a fish fry— from pond to table!

"Thank you, Blake, for being so generous and taking time to invest in the children from your home state by showing them what outdoor Oklahoma is all about," said wildlife officials.

Shelton, along with volunteers with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Oklahoma Department of Human Services and the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation helped teach the children how to fish.
