Once again attendance did not disappoint us at the 7th annual Fish for the Future. One couldn’t have asked for better weather. The sun was shining, the light southerly breeze kept everyone cool, it was a very enjoyable day.
123 juvenile saltwater fishing licences were issued during this year’s event. Some kids also came with a fishing licence already, so we probably had around 150 kids. Last year we wrote up exactly 200 licences. Attendance was down slightly, but traffic was still very steady at a relaxing pace, except the first two hours, which was almost a controlled chaos.
102 fish were caught and released.
- 62 coastrange sculpins
- 21 pacific staghorn sculpins
- 10 northern pikeminnows
- 5 peamouth chubs
- 4 starry flounders
Every kid who caught a fish was given a prize. The prizes available included T shirts, hats, fishing rods, lures, etc.
Photographs from the event can be found on this page.
Thanks go out to all the volunteers and exhibitors as well as parents who brought their kids out to the event. Next year’s event will be on July 10th. See you then!
