20th Annual Kids Only Trout Fishing Day

The twentieth  annual Kid’s Fishing Day will be held at Mint Springs Park in Crozet, Virginia on April 25, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Thomas Jefferson Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Kingfishers, and the Albemarle County Department of Parks and Recreation to promote cold-water fishery conservation and fishing as a wholesome family activity. This event celebrates the memory of David Thompson, a former member of Trout Unlimited.
Fish will be stocked for the event in the two lakes at Mint Springs. Mint Springs Park is located just west of downtown Crozet, on Route 684. All kids age 13 and under are invited. They may fish for free, and no license is required. Only one fishing rod per youngster is permitted.
Trout Unlimited and Kingfisher volunteers will operate a concession stand. Some bait and tackle will be offered for sale. The Western Albemarle Rescue Squad will be on hand in the event something other than a fish happens to get hooked.
