Huge turnout for Kids Fishing Day

A bank full of fishermen means a successful Kids Fishing Day.


The weather was right. The hot dogs were tasty. The fish were hungry. Kids were ready.

The Parks and Recreation Dept. held the annual Kids’ Fishing Day at Nelson Park Lake Saturday morning to a huge turnout of kids, parents and grandparents.

Parks and Recreation Director John Shelton called the event a success.

“This is a great event. It’s family fun. So many kids get to touch an actual fish. It’s not like going to the lake where you don’t know if you’ll catch anything or not. If you’re here early, you’re almost guaranteed to catch a fish,” he said.
