CITY CATCH Kids Fishing Clinic to be Held

posted in: freshwater fishing | 0

The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited in partnership with Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks will hold its annual children’s fishing clinic at the Winans Meadow Trailhead of the Gwynns Falls Leakin Park trail on April 10, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon.

CITY CATCH is a fishing clinic to teach children from Baltimore City how to fish for trout.  We are hoping it will encourage fishing in stream valley parks in Baltimore and give children a nice introduction to trout fishing and the importance of clean, healthy streams.

The Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks selects 120 children ages 10 to 14 to meet Trout Unlimited volunteers in Leakin Park at 9:00 AM on Saturday, April 10. MTU will provide a complete spin-cast fishing outfit for each child and will have stocked 1000 rainbow trout in Dead Run. Also provided will be a simple instruction booklet which outlines the basics of fishing and talks about the importance of clean streams.
