Kids Fishing Day, Buford Dam Park

By BCarson - Published October 13, 2011 - Viewed 2379 times

On Saturday September 24th   the Kiwanis and Optimist along with Georgia DNR, Johnsonville, Riverkeepers, Nothin but Fish, Bass Pro, Rainbow Ranch, Trout Unlimited and The Wild Turkey Federation sponsored a Kids Fishing Day at Buford Dam Park. This is one way to “get kids fishing”. DNR stocked 2500 trout with the help of the kids prior to breaking out the rods and reels. I must admit that I have as much fun at these events as the  younger kids do. This is my 7th year of being involved and just like the kids…I got hooked.

My favorite thing to do is wear my waders, bring an ultra light combo and between tying hooks hook a few fish then ask a kid to hold my rod while I tie my shoe…why is your rod jerking, I ask…better check it….and the rest is history. Each year I hear numerous parents and kids remark this is the first fish they have ever caught and for an admitted fish-a-holic this is a big reward. I encourage everyone to get involved and help me spread this disease. There are some pictures from this event….
