SOUTH FORK- The annual South Fork Kids’ Fishing Clinic will be this Saturday, June 20, starting at 8 a.m. at Tucker Ponds. The event is for children 15 and under and no free rods/reels will be provided this year, so please bring your own. Come to fish until 11:30, then Frito pie and hot dogs will be served. Admission is free and open to the public but donations are welcome. There will be a drawing for fishing poles and equipment.
In addition to casting and rod basics, the children will be learning about rules and regulations from CPW officers. Volunteer officers sit down with each group and talk to them about the rules for fishing. Officers explain that each child can keep up to four fish to take home on any given day, but that they could catch and release the fish as much as they wanted.
