 SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Mid-Valley Bass Club will host the 2018 Kid’s Fishing Day at Eastman Lake on April 7, 2018, providing a FREE day of fishing and fun for children 15 years and under. This event is designed to spark an interest in fishing and water safety for the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts. Fishing experts will be on-hand to teach kids the basics of baiting, casting and reeling in the big one. Along with fishing, the following activities are scheduled to take place during the Kid's Fishing Day event:
  •  Casting contest
  • Professional DJ

 Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Chowchilla Recreation Area Pavilion. Fishing will run until 11:30 a.m. and the festivities will continue into the afternoon. Guests with their own fishing poles are encouraged to bring them; the park staff will hand out loaner fishing poles, but supplies are limited. Individuals 16 years old or older must have a valid fishing license.

 Fourth graders with an authorized Every Kid in the Park™ (EKiP) voucher can exchange their voucher for their plastic EKiP Pass. This 12-month pass authorizes fourth graders and their family to visit hundreds of federal parks nationwide for free. https://www.google.com/search?q=EKiP&cad=h
