Nearly 30 kids grabbed their poles and tackle boxes Friday afternoon, May 25 for a four-hour fishing camp held at Holyoke Lions Club Fishing Pond.

The weather wasn’t ideal but the kids had a great time anyway.    —Enterprise photo

Jack Wieland and another officer with the Division of Wildlife came together with Phillips County Extension Office to make the afternoon and evening a success.

Kids as young as 5 learned about fishing and how to fish properly.

Before baiting their lines, campers spent time in three different groups learning fish identification, casting and the rules of fishing.

Wieland helped students identify different species of fish and taught them where each species likes to stay in the pond.

Campers also went over some simple fishing rules and regulations. They then became familiar with their poles by casting at some plastic fish targets.

Following the learning, it was time to get the hooks wet.

Parents helped their children as they circled the pond hoping to catch a fish.     —Enterprise photo

Following the fishing action, a hotdog and s’mores meal was served.
