22ND ANNUAL PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED
KID’S FISHING DAY
September 24th was a fun day! Delaying the
event worked in our favor as we had
beautiful warm weather.

The average size
of the hungry trout was above normal.
Thirty-six anxious faces showed up for an
afternoon of fishing, food, friends, prizes
and big smiles for the 22nd Annual Kids
Fishing Day.
Every one of the kids caught their limit of
rainbow trout. The largest fish weighed in
at 3 lbs. 4 oz. and was caught by Trey
Lemer.

He will get his name and picture
added to the plaque in the Visitor’s Center
at the Hatchery. Dakota Taxidermy is going
to stuff and mount his fish so Trey can
proudly display it for a long time to come.
After fishing, picture taking and lunch, all
the kids got great prizes.

The Moose Lodge
#302 provided the funds to purchase
canteens and headlamps.

The kids can now
go ‘Fishing in the Dark’. Great River Energy
paid for t-shirts. Dakota Tackle donated
tackle packs. ND Game and Fish gave us
small tackle boxes for door prizes. Bobcat
donated some miniature Bobcat replicas for
door prizes. Those with the winning tickets
got extra prizes.
We had more contributors. Dan’s Super
Market provided the groceries for lunch.
Scott’s Bait and Tackle donated bait and
snacks. The kids went home with a full
tummy, a bag of cleaned fish, lots of prizes,
and grinning from ear to ear.

The ND
Governor’s Walleye Cup gave us a nice check
to get the event started for next year. The
Club and the kids really appreciate the
generous donations and the continued
support. Please give our sponsors a big
thank you if you ever get the chance.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you to the volunteers: Floyd and Barb
Fischer, Lyle Fischer, Bryce and Marie
Andersen, Gary Martin, Doug Kitzan and
Lugene Gerber. Gary contacted Bobcat for
prizes. Barb is the master at registration
and keeping track of the important
information.
Marie became master chef.
Doug was master fish cleaner.
Bryce, you got a break this year.
Kevin helped clean fish until he had to make a hotdog run.

There was brief panic in Pick City when they
thought we forgot the hotdogs again.
Luckily we only ran short and didn’t need too
many. The master netters were on the run
to help bring in the fish. One of the kid’s
dads went for a slide into the pond and also
needed to be ‘netted’ out.
The volunteers did a great job! Everybody knew what
needed to be done and did it.
The Club members are always good at supporting this event and without your help it wouldn’t happen. Thank you!
Also, thank you to the folks at the Garrison
Dam National Fish Hatchery, Mindy Coy, Rob
Holm, Carmen Sheldon, and Alison Zehnle.
They also do a lot of work for this event.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to
be part of Kid’s Fishing Day.
No one goes home without a smile!
