|New intergenerational youth Fishing Clinic set for July 30 at TimberRidge Adventure Center|
Teaching your child how to handle fish, and all the other tasks associated with going fishing, can be a challenge, but a new program being offered by Johnson County Park & Recreation District in late July can help.
This intergenerational Youth Fishing Clinic is for ages six to 14 with a parent or guardian. Families are invited to come to TimberRidge Adventure Center for 45 minutes of instructions, including knot tying, casting, and fish identification. Following instruction, the remainder of the clinic will be an opportunity for the children to fish with the assistance of their parent or guardian. We will be practicing catch and release and all participants 16 years of age and older are required to have a Kansas State fishing license. Fishing equipment and bait will be provided. Each child will get a free prize at the end of the clinic!
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “fishing.”
This program will take place beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 30 at the TimberRidge Adventure Center, 12300 S. Homestead Lane, Olathe. The cost for this three-hour program is $3 per person for Johnson County residents or $4 per person for nonresidents.
