The popular event is free to enter for kids 15 years of age and younger and offers a raffle as well as prizes awarded for the top 3 trout caught per age division. A special grand prize award will also be up for grabs for the heaviest trout weighed during the contest.
In addition to the fishing fun, there will be additional events to keep the kids entertained including a story-telling contest and free BBQ lunch.
The lake will be stocked with 3,000 pounds of rainbow trout prior to the event, and is closed for all fishing from February 4th through 6th to ensure those trout remain available for the kids on February 7th.
The event runs from 6 AM through 12 PM on Saturday, but there is also a free dinner and fishing seminar provided on Friday evening from 5 to 8 PM. Camping is also available overnight preceeding the event, but requires early registration.
