Kids Fishing Day 2011

"I got a bite!" Kids Fishing Day, June 11, 2011 - Patuxent hosted more than 75 happy anglers - and - their families and friends. Activities were targeted for kids 15-and-under with little or no fishing experience. The refuge supplied equipment, coaching in casting and fish handling followed by fishing on Cash Lake or Lake Redington. Many kids caught their first fish here at Patuxent!
