This event is part of the department’s Children’s Fishing Program, designed to give kids the opportunity for a fun and successful fishing experience. The event is sponsored by a local organization and the department provides 8 to 10” stocked trout for the kids to test out their angling skills. Fishing will take place from 9am to noon, rain or shine, with casting practice before starting at 8am.
Educational stations will be provided, staffed in part by members of the Windsor High School Bass Fishing Team. Kids will learn about fish location/identification, baiting, casting, and food preparation.
The Team will also offer a fish cleaning station so that kids can take home their catches ready to eat. Bait has been generously provided by Tillman’s Bait Shop, a local business.
Families wishing to participate should bring a rigged fishing pole with tackle and a bucket or stringer. Some donated equipment is available for those who don’t have it.
