Youth, fish and smiles in WA.

Taking kids fishing

There is nothing better than the smile on a kid while they are holding up their prize catch. We encourage you to take a kid fishing in Washington. Take a picture of their catch and let us post it here. They don't have to be trophy fish, trophy smiles are what it's all about.

See ideas for taking kids fishing on nearby, local waters.

Youngsters with their prized catch

Washington bass caught by Degan Kidwell

Degan Kidwell shows off a real nice bass he caught on the Pend Orielle River. Degan would "cast his minnow-shaped lure out, reel it in until it was right in front of him, let it down until he couldn't see it, reeled it up until he could hardly see it and move it around and he would just watch a fish eat it."

Washington Trout

7-Year old, Adin Rees and 10-year old, Sophie Rees show off trout they caught in a derby at Lake Wilderness.
