Fishing Event Reels In 150 Kids

KSAL StaffJune 4, 2016

Children from around the area got hooked on fishing Saturday at Lakewood Park in Salina.

“Fishing With a Cop,” reeled in 150 kids, who showed up to throw a line into the water. The event is a spin-off from the annual Lakewood Fishing Derby that added the involvement of local law enforcement.

On Saturday officers with Salina Police Department, Saline County Sheriff Deputies, Kansas Highway Patrol Troopers and Officers with the Kansas Wildlife were there with displays, providing hands-on advice for some young anglers, and sharing stories while displaying watercraft and patrol cars.

Drawings were held for prizes that included fishing poles, kayaks, a gas grill plus a couple of fishing trips to Lake Texoma and Milford Lake.
