Lacey, Saturday, April 19th Lacey Family Fish In Fishing event for kids 5-14 will take place at the Woodland Creek Community Park at Long’s Pond. Preregister for 5.00 with the city of Lacey parks department. Each child who participates will receive a rod and reel to keep, and volunteers will be on hand to assist. Call 360 491 0857 for more information.Event includes educational stations as well as fishing. Pre-registration is going on now, and is required. When I spoke to Liz this morning there were still spots at all times. Do note that this is the day before Easter (You knew that, right?), so if you’re also planning an egg hunt for Saturday, you’ll want to schedule accordingly!
I’m working on tracking down info. on other South Sound fishing events. Sadly, there do seem to be fewer every year. Of course, you don’t need to participate in an official event to take your kids fishing. There are plenty of area spots to choose from, and even if they aren’t biting, you can always tell everyone about the one that got away! Children under 14 do not need a fishing license, so the only investment (besides time) is a pole and some bait. If you will be fishing-which means having your own pole/line in, or holding the pole, then you need to get a license for yourself.
