KENTUCKY (6/4/13) – Muhlenberg County’s Take a Kid Fishing event that was originally scheduled for May 11 is, weather permitting, still set for June 8th, this Saturday in the city of Greenville in Muhlenberg County at the Luzerne Lake.
All youth, ages 3-15, from Muhlenberg and surrounding areas are invited to take part.
There will be four different age groups set to be awarded prizes of smallest fish, largest fish and most fish. Also, a casting and reeling contest for kids will take place in the same age groups.
There will be a $1.00 preregistration fee for kids and adults. All children entering will receive a free T-shirt, hot dogs, chips and a drink, plus lots of goody bags will be available. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Bait will be provided, along with poles, but you can bring your own pole and bait.
This event is for bank fishing only. No boats will be allowed on the lake during the event.
Preregistration forms may be picked up at Uncle Lee’s Sporting Goods, as well as all local banks and water offices.
If you aren’t preregistered, you can still enter at the event for a fee of $2.00.
Parking will be set at the Ben Topmiller Baseball Park on the 189 Bypass. You can have a tractor-hayride down to the lake area for fishing.
For any further information on this event, you may contact the Muhlenberg County Co-op Extension Office or any water office.
Good luck to all our local young anglers!
