Lacey Family Fish-In
It is with great pleasure that the South Sound Chapter Puget Sound Anglers announces the return of our annual Kids Fish-in at Longs Pond in Lacey, WA on Saturday April 17, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. This event offers kids 4 to 14 years of age an opportunity to learn how to fish, be safe on the water and finally to catch a fish. Each participant will receive a fishing pole and terminal tackle at no cost.
We plan to place a net along 400’ of the shoreline of Longs Pond planted with 2,000 rainbow trout provided by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The netted area will be marked with 8’ spacing providing up to 50 participants an opportunity to try out their new fishing pole. Each participant will be allowed to fish for one hour or until they catch two fish within the netted area. The netted area will reopen at 1:00 PM for anyone who wants to take another try at catching a trout. There will be volunteers to provide technical advice and to clean the fish for successful anglers.
In addition to the fishing opportunity, we will offer instruction and demonstrations on boater safety with an actual boat on premises, how to cast and how to identify the various fish species in our area.
All participants must pre-register with the South Sound Chapter Puget Sound Anglers prior to April 15, 2021 at the bottom of the Kids Fish-in tab. Participants will be scheduled at hourly intervals beginning at 9:00 AM to avoid overcrowding.
All participants/volunteers will wear masks at all times and adhere to a minimum of 6' spacing. Hand cleaning stations will be furnished.
