Registration is now open for a free day of fishing in Salina. “Fishing With a Cop” is preparing to roll out its fifth edition.
The”Fishing With a Cop” event this year is scheduled for Saturday, June 1st, at Lakewood Park.
The fishing event is a spin-off from the annual Lakewood Fishing Derby that has added the involvement of local law enforcement and draws hundreds of kids, parents and grandparents to enjoy fishing together.
As in the past couple of years law enforcement officers from Salina Police, Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Highway Patrol Troopers and Officers with the Kansas Wildlife and Parks will be there providing hands-on advice for some young anglers while also displaying watercraft and patrol vehicles.
Drawings will be held for prizes. Organizers are reminding businesses that they can make a charitable contribution to ensure that every child will have a positive experience.
Prizes will be awarded at 11am.
Participants are required to register, and there will be three age categories. Registration is now open. Register by contacting Salina Parks and Recreation.
For more information contact Sgt. Brent Rupert with the Salina Police Department at 785-826-7210.
The 2019 “Fishing With a Cop” is a free event for everyone.
