Happy fishers at Mason Lake (Shelton, Wa) Kids Fish-In
Thanks to all the volunteers, 2018 Kid's Fish-in was a great success. You made some lasting memories for many a kid and I heard a lot of Thank You's from the parents.
Wea had at least 80 kids catch fish. Some kids (with teacher permission) took the fish back to the school to be grilled and eaten!
Let's do it again :-)
All 2018 NOF meeting schedules are located on WDFW webpage at: https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/northfalcon/

JUNE CLUB MESSAGE

In addition to trading fishing tips, techniques and opportunities, the South Sound Chapter has traditionally actively promoted opportunities for kids to experience the joy of catching a fish. We have a portable fish pond that we take to many venues during the year as well as sponsoring an annual Family Fish-In at Long’s Pond in Lacey. Thus far this year, we have provided almost a thousand kids a chance to catch a fish at events such as the Fish-In, Columbus Park or the Lacey Cabela’s. Those attending the Fish-In not only got to fish, but also went home with a new rod and reel. This was made possible by a grant we have received from Cabela’s to purchase six hundred rods and reels for use at various events this year. I understand that the source of the funds they have given us is money they have raised when they ask you to round up to the nearest full dollar amount when you make a purchase. I encourage everyone to do just that so we or other organizations might continue efforts to promote fishing.
Our May speaker was Steve Caromile from WDFW. Steve is an enthusiastic bass fish-er and gave a very entertaining and educational talk on fishing for bass and other warm water fish species throughout the state of Washington. Steve also gave an over-view of WDFW’s new Fish Washington app. It provides users immediate access to information regarding fishing opportunities and regulations.
We have several upcoming events on the calendar. We will be at Panhandle Lake on June 9th to assist with a Mason County kids fishing opportunity. More long term we are planning for a club member only fishing derby on August 18. You might want to put the date on your calendar. The board is actively looking for other opportunities for outings. Please contact one of us if you have any suggestions.
Our June meeting will be on the 7th. The speaker is scheduled to be Lee Warnaca of the Tacoma Maritime Institute. TMI provides maritime education and safety training. Lee will give us actual cases of maritime accidents, how they can be prevented and what to do when they happen. Jerry Peterson, speaker Chairman, says that after you hear Lee speak, he guarantees you will have renewed interest in have your life jacket nearby. I hope to see you then.
