Trout event for all ages Sept. 14 (09/08/2013)
The public is invited to join in on some fishing fun at the Preston Trailhead Park on Saturday, September 14. The National Trout Center and the Hiawatha Trout Unlimited Chapter are co-sponsoring the event which offers a variety of afternoon outdoor activities, ending with a hog roast dinner in the evening.

Participate in a “One-Lure Catch & Release Fishing Contest” from 1-5 p.m. which takes place along Preston’s 9-Hole Fishing Course on the Root River. There is a $5 participation fee to enter. Contest rules can be obtained by emailing: info@nationaltroutcenter.org or by visiting: www.nationaltroutcenter.org.

Between 2-3 p.m. geologist Jeff Broberg will lead an interpretive geological walk along the trail. Other proposed activities for the day include hands-on fly casting and fly tying demonstrations, an aquatic bug demonstration, and a kid’s coloring contest. Take part in an educational habitat hideout activity for all ages involving fly casting and discussion about fish habitat. Also learn how to tie key fishing knots at the knot practice station using mounted hooks and various thicknesses of rope.

The hog roast dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. The meal includes a pork sandwich, salad/baked beans, chips, soda/water, and dessert. Adults: $10, children under 12: $4.

It will be a fun-filled afternoon for all ages so come check us “trout”!
