Families that have an interest in making fishing a part of their activity should make plans to attend the Fishing Kids event on June 7th at the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery. The event is a combination of education and a hands-on fishing experience. Kids age five to 14 that pre-register for the event will receive a free t-shirt when they check in, pass through a few educational stations and then receive a free rod and reel to take home with them. They will then get assistance at the trout pond and get to catch two fish to take home. The trout are then cleaned, iced and bagged for the trip home. There is a registration fee of five dollars for each child, and there are a couple of ways to get registration blanks. One is to stop by Hooked on Toys in Wenatchee. The other is to go to my web site,, and click on Events for Kids. You’ll the Leavenworth event listed and a link to a site where you can get a registration form to print right at home. Hundreds of kids come to the event every year and they all leave beaming with the joy of catching their first fish. Come join the fun!
