Get hooked on fishing!
Submitted By the City of Newark
Izaak Walton, the great apologist of fishermen everywhere and author of the 1653 bestseller, ?The Compleat Angler,? said, ?No life is so happy and so pleasant as the life of the well-govern'd angler.? Walton would have agreed with the proposal that fishing exercises some of our best qualities, such as patience, self-reflection, and even mercy.
If you would like to introduce your kids to this ?innocent recreation,? as Walton put it, reel in the coming opportunity in Newark at Lakeshore Park on Saturday, April 14. Throughout this fun and informative morning, fishing experts from the Tri-City Anglers will give basic lessons on knot tying, casting, how to bait the hook, and fish handling techniques. Bring your own pole or use one of our loaner poles.
Children under 8 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents are asked not to fish during the youth fishing time. The lake will be planted with fish for the event. California fish and game laws will be enforced and fishing is limited to youth 8 to 16 years old during the Fishing in the Cities program.
