Fishing Day teaches kids about the one that didn't get away
Kiwanis Kids Fishing Day took place at Lake Clementia Sunday. It featured blue skies and 700 pounds of rainbow trout for young anglers to catch. After receiving instruction from members of the California Department of Fish and Game, about 140 children lined the banks of the lake to test their skill and try their luck. Angelina Tresner, 8, was one of the day's success stories, catching a 1-pound, 3-ounce trout and getting a lesson in fish-cleaning from Bob Rohland of the Fishing Club.
When so many local organizations do so much for kids, I must simply ask, "What kind of jerk" (believe me, I have thought of other descriptors unlikely to be published) would steal gifts for sure-to-be-grateful kids? I hope anyone who has a clue will report the person to both Security and the SSD, as it is a petty theft and likely somewhat more.
Our daughter was one of the winners today and prize or no prize, the true reward was to catch the biggest fish while sharing the experience with her father and good friends. We are so blessed to live in a community that offers a time for children and parents to participate in the joys and challenges of fishing. We really appreciate the time and dedication that the Fishing Club and Kiwanis put into this event on this beautiful Spring day.
Without speculating on what happened to the prizes...I am sure that most, if not all, families had a great time just as well.
Thank you Rancho Murieta!!!
