The annual Silver Lake Kids’ Fish-in on Saturday provides children ages 4 to 14 the opportunity to bait, cast and catch trout. Expert guides from the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club will be on hand to assist.
“The fish-in is a great way to introduce kids to fishing and get them outside,” said Barry Martin, recreation coordinator.
The fish-in runs from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Thornton A. Sullivan Park, 11405 W. Silver Lake Road. The event is free, but registration is required. Children who have their own gear and poles should bring those along. There will be a limited supply of gear to borrow.
Register at the Everett Parks &Recreation Office, 802 E. Mukilteo Blvd., or download a registration form at everettwa.org/parks. Completed forms may be returned by fax, email or mail. More info: 425-257-8300, ext 2.
