|First-Ever Father/Daughter Fishing Day is Aug. 19 at TimberRidge Adventure Center|
Fathers can bring their daughters, ages eight and older, to experience the thrill of fishing at the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's TimberRidge Adventure Center.
The first-ever Father/Daughter fishing Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19 at TimberRidge, which is located at 12300 South Homestead Lane, Olathe, and is accessible via an entrance which is separate from and south of the main entrance to Kill Creek Regional Park. Advance registration is required for this event.
TimberRidge is not normally open for public fishing due to camp and other programs, so this is a unique opportunity to fish the facility's beautiful ponds. Only catch-and-release fishing will be allowed. Ages 15 and younger can fish without a license, but anyone 16 or older will need a Kansas Fishing license, which will not be available on-site. District fishing permits will not be required for this event.
The cost for this four-hour program is $5 per person, including adults, for Johnson County residents, or $6 per person for nonresidents. Fishing line and hooks will be provided for youth without a pole and sticks can be found to make their own pole. Hotdogs and corn will be provided as bait.
