Park District to stage child-adult fishing event

April 27, 2010

Have you ever wanted to fish with your child or grandchild and didn’t know how? A special event being offered by the Park Safety and Interpretive Division of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District can help.

This Adult/Child Fishing Clinic will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 8, at Shelter #4 near the marina at Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa. This event is for ages 8 to 14 with a parent or guardian. During this intergenerational program, the first hour will involve a clinic for adults covering basic fishing techniques, fish identification, equipment and knot tying. The remainder of the event will give children a chance to fish with their parent or guardian. Perform a catalog search for the keyword “fishing” to find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities Catalog and online listings.

Fishing equipment and bait will be provided. Cost for one three-hour event is $10 per person for Johnson County residents or $11 per person for nonresidents. Participation is limited to 30 people, and preregistration is required.
