Reason for action: This rule change is necessary to ensure a successful kid's fishing event. Several thousand rainbow trout will be stocked two days prior to the event to acclimate them to assure they will bite while the kids are fishing. During the event, only registered kids will be allowed to fish.

Other Information: This is the second year of this event. It is put on by the Toledo Lions Club.

Information Contact: John Weinheimer (360)906-6746.
