Fishing Day catch

Gallery of photos from Kids Fishing Day (25 photos)

Seven-year-old Tessa Coleman didn't want to stand too close to the fish she caught, though she was sure she was eating it for dinner. Kiwanis Kids Fishing Day, which happened Saturday after the rain finally stopped, is an annual event that turns Lake Clementia into a classroom so children can put into practice the fishing skills they learn from California Department of Fish and Wildlife personnel and Rancho Murieta Fishing Club volunteers. The lake was stocked with 700 pounds of trout – and 1½ pounds of that total is pictured here. Kiwanis Key Club high school students prepared and served hot dog lunches to the crowd. The Fishing Club says the net holding the fish in the beach part of Lake Clementia will be kept up through the weekend, so have at it, fisherpeople. (Click photo for larger image.)

Getting ready for Kids Fishing Day

| Filed under

Truck stuckA truck from Calaveras Trout Farm showed up Friday morning at Lake Clementia to stock 700 pounds of trout for Saturday's Kids Fishing Day (which will go on rain or shine, according to Kiwanis, the organizer). The stocking took only two shakes of a trout's tail, but the rain pinned the truck in the lakeside mud for a half-hour. A Rancho Murieta Association backhoe rode to the rescue, getting the truck on its way. (Click photos for larger images.) Read more » about Getting ready for Kids Fishing Day
