The Trout fishing outing is for the youth, ages 16 and under. The target date will be Saturday January 12, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The program goal is to release catchable size rainbow trout in Keneteso Park Pond. The youth in Gainesville and the surrounding cities will have chance to experience hands on fishing.
The Gainesville Parks and Recreation Department will have Keneteso Park Pond stocked with over 2,700 trout to increase the odds of a memorable fishing experience. This event is absolutely free to youth participants. As a reminder there is a catch limit of five trout per person.
The kids will need to furnish their own fishing pole and bate (caned corn, marshmallows, or bright colors was successful last year), bring your parents or grandparent to assist if needed.
