Kids Fish in at Long's Pond/Woodland Community Center was April 21. 


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.


I haven't heard the final count yet, but will let you know as soon as I do.


There was a lot of families fishing the pond today.  Every family had fish on a stringer.  The bait of choice was Berkley Power Bait "Hatchery Formula" fished on the bottom with 6" dropper and 2' leader.  Some very nice looking fish.


Nice going everybody!  Many hands made for a smooth, efficient and enjoyable event.


Let's do it again:)


All volunteers need to complete their background checks for this event.  Forms are available from a PSA Board member or from Lacey Parks and Rec (See above link)

April was a busy month for our members. The month started with our annual seafood banquet on April 5. 0ver 75 members and guests enjoyed a very enjoyable salmon, steelhead and steamer clam dinner. This event is made possible by the hard work of Dee Glenn who for many years has served as coordinator of this event. I would like to also acknowledge the members who donated the salmon and steelhead we enjoyed as well as those who volunteered to cook the fish and clams, help set up and clean the room.
The month continued with two more events. On April 14, several members assisted the staff at the Satsop Springs Hatchery load 1,994 five to eight pound rainbow trout into trucks for deliv-ery to local lakes. The second event was the annual Family Fish-In at Longs Pond in Lacey. On the 16th over 25 members spent the evening assembling fishing rods and preparing gift bags for the kids. The highlight of this event happened on the 21st when several hundred kids got a chance to catch a rainbow trout and to take home a new fishing rod. Again thanks to the many members who volunteered their time and energy to make this event happen.
Although many of us have been fishing throughout the winter, May is considered by many the start of the boating season. We will soon be fishing lowland lakes for trout and saltwater for halibut and shrimp followed by salmon throughout the balance of the summer and fall. So it is time to get our boats out of storage and make sure that they are ready to be used. The first thing we all need to do is to refresh our knowledge of boating safety practices. The next thing to do is to check all your safety equipment to ensure that is serviceable. You should especially look at the expiration dates on your flares and fire extinguisher and replace those that are no longer valid. Finally, make sure the boat and the trailer it has been sitting on all winter are sound mechanically. If all these items check out have a great summer on the water.
The speaker at our May 3rd meeting will be Steve Caromile. Steve will provide an interesting discussion of fishing opportunities in Eastern Washington for warm water species. He will also talk about WDFWs trout stocking program throughout the state. I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting.

Just a reminder, if you havent paid your 2018 dues by April 1st, you will be removed from our membership list. That means you will no longer receive our newsletter and the Reel News. Please send your check to Dee Glenn at 4608 17th Ave. SE, Lacey, WA 98503.
