Welcome to Klineline Kids Fishing
When and Where:
Join us for Klineline Kids Fishing event held annually in Salmon Creek Park. We are expecting 500 special needs kids and adults on Friday, April 7. On Saturday, April 8, 2017 we are expecting 2500 kids, ages 5 to 14. Registration begins February 1.
Presented by Klineline Kids Fishing Nonprofit, with lots of help and support from Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, Clark Public Utilities, US Fish & Wildlife, Fire District 6, local businesses, and sport fishing groups; Klineline Kids Fishing introduces kids to the benefits of fishing as an individual and family activity, and is aimed at getting more kids outdoors, involved in fishing, and aware of our natural environment.
Over a two-day period 8000 to 10,000 people will gather at Salmon Creek Park/Klineline Pond in Vancouver, WA. to help children experience fishing, playing outside, and learning about water safety and our natural resources. To create stewards for our future fisheries we need to introduce children to the benefits of fishing as an individual and family activity, and as a way to become more aware of the outdoor environment.
