The 4th annual youth fishng event occurred at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Woodbridge,Va, May 21, 2005. Over 50 kids between the ages of 9-12 pre-registered and others showed up that day. FWS Personnel, Friends of the Refuge, and Volunteers from the local Rod & Gun Club staffed the registration booth, gave out rods and worms, and escorted the kids to the pond to teach fishing techniques. Trout Unlimited provided bait casting lessons and taught some fisheries science. The fishes also cooperated well as most kids caught multiple fishes including largemouth bass, catfish, wite perch, and bluegills. The new wooden fishing dock provided much usage and the new wooden pavilion provided nice shade for lunch. All kids who registered received a bag of goodies and free lunch. All kids who caught a fish were given a Polaroid picture with their catch, and a signed fishing certificate. In addition, prizes donated by local WAL-MART and Gander Mountain were given out at random.
