Carson National Fish Hatchery will hold its ninth annual Kids' Fishing Day on Saturday, Sept. 8. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
No registrations will be taken after noon; fishing will wrap up at 1 p.m.
The event is open to everyone age 12 and under. The hatchery will have two adult holding ponds filled with 1,000 rainbow trout just waiting to be caught. A two-fish limit per child will again be in force. Poles, bait, tackle and fish cleaning will be provided.
In addition to the fishing, the miniature golf course, Migration Golf--Links to the Sea, will be set up and ready for players. There will also be educational activities, a practice casting station and free hot dogs, fruit and cookies.
Anglers may want to bring a cooler with ice to take their fish home. For more information about the event, call the hatchery at (509) 427-5905.
Carson National Fish Hatchery is located 13 miles north of Carson, at milepost 14 on the Wind River Highway.
Kellan Duffy, 9, of White Salmon shot a 42 for nine holes to place third in the last U.S. Kids Golf tournament of the year, at the OGA course in Tukwila, Ore.
Duffy's third-place finish at Tukwila earned him an overall trophy of fourth place for the season, out of a field of 11 boys.
The young golfer played in tournaments throughout the summer, at various courses in the Portland area. Junior golfers compete against others in their age category for the first-place trophy and an invitation to the U.S. Kids Golf World Championship in Pinehurst, S.C.
