LoveGreenLake.com Fishing Kids
presented by Brad S Cooper Homes & Promotion Events
This event allows kids aged 5-14 years of age (only) to experience a popular outdoor activity without going to the mountains. All equipment and supplies are provided. Volunteers will be on hand to help make this event successful for every child.
We will install a net in Green Lake by the swim area near Bathhouse Theater and stock it full of hungry trout making it almost certain your child will catch a fish. The volunteers will help baiting the hook and landing the fish. This is for the kids so parents need to resist the urge to completely take over in all the excitement. Although helping is encouraged while sharing in this experience with your child is one of the event goals.
In order for the event to proceed smoothly and to help your child have a positive experience, please arrive 45 minutes before the start of your fishing time. This will allow plenty of time to check in and pick up the event T-Shirt before your group receives the water safety presentation and fishing poles. The fishing poles are a great beginner pole that your child will be able to keep and use again and again.
Fishing sessions last for 30 minutes or until 2 trout are caught. Once 30 minutes has passed or the 2 fish limit has been reached all kids and parents are to move to the fish cleaning station where volunteers working for tips will & bag the fish so you are able to take it/them home for dinner. For a lot of kids this will be their first personal experience with the food chain. Any child not catching a fish in the 30 minute window will be allowed to continue fishing until they are successful. They may have to wait for the next fishing session however but it is up to the volunteer.
This event is very expensive to organize and host. Your registration covers approximately half of the cost while business sponsorships cover the balance. Please take a moment to thank each sponsor for helping to provide this opportunity for your child. The quickest and easiest way would be to tag them in your social media post about the event or simply posing on their social media profile. You may find a link to their profiles here. Without them this event would not happen!
This event is extremely popular and will sell out. Register early and tell your friends in order to secure your space. Space is very limited and can not be increased as the poles and fish were ordered in mid March.
If you are able to sponsor a child through a scholarship please consider doing that here.
