Genoa NFH Hosts Kids Ice Fishing Event

Genoa National Fish Hatchery maintenance mechanic, Dan Kumlin, helps a young participant catch a fish at the 2013 Kids Fishing Day event.  More than 500 children and their parents ventured out to the hatchery, on January 26, to learn ice fishing from the experts before attempting to catch rainbow trout in a stocked hatchery pond.  The annual event was sponsored by the Friends of the Upper Mississippi River Fisheries Services and three U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service fisheries offices located in the La Crosse, Wisconsin area.
