The last kids fishout for 2009 was held on the 1st of November 2009. Nearly 300 children and young adults took the opportunity to learn how to cast a fly followed by catching a trout (some for the first time) from the fishout pond at the fish and game hatchery. Attached are photos of some of the successes on this day.
