Annual Kids Fishing Day at Dow's Lake

On Sunday, July 11th 2010, during the National Fishing Week, the East Ottawa Optimist Club and Big Brothers / Big Sisters of Ottawa held the Annual Kids Fishing Day at Dow's Lake.  As in the past, members of the Ottawa Valley South Bassmasters once again had the honour to be involved and were more than willing to contribute to this great event!  Along with a team of volunteers from other fishing groups and organizations, we helped the kids tie hooks to their line, taught kids how to cast their rods, baited hooks with worms, identify fish caught and showed the kids how to handle and release the fish. A free hot dog lunch was provided and the kids got to keep the rod and reel along with a small tackle box and gift at the end of the day. Representatives from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources were present as well helping with the kids and displaying a booth on conservation and poaching. And last but not least, Big Jim was going around giving out freebies to all the kids and some of the big kids.
