The 12th Annual Kids Fishing Day in Sequim is from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 17, and is presented by the Puget Sound Anglers – North Olympic Peninsula Chapter in coordination with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the City of Sequim Public Works Department.
In 2013, nearly 500 children participated in this event.
The event is free fishing for trout at the Water Reclamation pond north of Carrie Blake Park and no fishing license required.
The pond is stocked with 1,500 trout, some up to 5 pounds, plus a special pool for toddlers with a separate stock of trout. The event is open only to children 14 years and younger.
Bring your own pole and bait or borrow a rod from the club stock. Bait also is supplied by the club. Learn how to clean the fish by watching club members clean and ice your catch.
The pond will be stocked with another 1,000 fish in the following weeks so children may continue to fish through the summer.
