Grab Your Rods and Reels! The Fishing Derby is Coming Up!

I am convinced that a day of fishing with your kids is one of the best ways to go about  kids fishing with textmaking memories, teaching lessons, bonding, and having an unforgettable day all around.  Apparently the Pendleton Lions Club also believes that too which is why they are sponsoring a fishing derby on Saturday, August 9th at Falls Park.  There will be two age brackets with the first one being ages 5-8 and they will register at 8:00 am sharp and fish from 8:30-9:30.  The second age group ranges in ages from 9-12 and will register at 9:00 am and fish from 9:30-10:30.  Trophies will be given out for the most fish caught and for the largest fish caught but as most true fishermen can attest, it’s not about the trophies or even catching a fish at all but about just being out there and reconnecting! Just like Herbert Hoover once said, “Fishing is much more than fish.  It is the great occasion when we may return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.”

We hope to see all of you out there!
