Great Falls Kids Fishing Day is this Saturday, June 8th and you’re invited!
The Lewis & Clark District will be at the pond with water bottles and we need your help staffing the booth! If Scouts from your Pack or Troop are able to spend an hour directing traffic or helping at the casting station the event organizers would be very grateful. You can also help by handing out water bottles and talking to kids about Scouts, please email or text Sandra (406-282-1129) by Thursday at 5pm.
Central Montana’s 25th annual fishing day for youngsters will take place 9 a.m. to noon, June 8, at Wadsworth Pond on the west side of Great Falls. As in past years, the Great Falls chapter of Walleyes Unlimited will give away a free rod and reel outfit or a tackle box to youngsters who complete a series of educational stations.
No fishing license is required that day at Wadsworth Pond. There is no age limit but the activities are geared to youngsters just learning how to fish. To reach Wadsworth Pond head west on Central Avenue over I-15, turn north on 34th St. NW, then turn west on Wilkinson Lane and follow to the park. Groups participating include: Walleyes Unlimited, FWP, Malmstrom Air Force Base, Missouri River Flyfishers and North Middle School Fishing Club and the Boy Scouts of America.
