Kids’ Fishing Day reels in over 900 anglers
August 20, 2014
Saturday marked another successful Kid’s Fishing Day for Roaring River State Park. This year, the kids tags numbers were up from the previous fall kids fishing event.
According to Paul Spurgeon, Roaring River State Park hatchery manager, the park handed out 970 tags. Last year, there were only 888 tags handed out. Spurgeon said, “Our fall events are never as busy as the spring Kids’ Fishing Day, but we were pleasantly surprised with the turnout.” He continued, “We though that with some of the schools starting a week early, it might affect the attendance, but it was pretty steady all day, even though it rained a little bit.”
