    WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE

    Klineline Pond in Vancouver closes to public for Kids Fish-In

    Action: Closes Klineline Pond to fishing by the public one day prior to the fishing event as well as the two days of the event.

    Effective date:

    • April 6 – 12:01 a.m., entire pond closed to public fishing
    • April 7 – pond closed except to registered participants
    • April 8 – pond closed except to registered participants
    • April 9 – pond reopens to the public
    Location: Klineline Pond is located at Salmon Creek Park in Vancouver, Wash.

    Reason for action: This rule change is necessary to assure a safe and successful Kids Fish-In event. The fish will be planted one day prior to the event to better acclimate them before the event. Several thousand fish will be placed into netted areas along the shoreline of the pond. On the days of the event, pre-registered kids will be allowed to fish within these netted areas. The pond will not open to the public until April 9. Anglers will not be able to fish until the day after the event on April 9.

    The reason for keeping the pond closed after the event is to ensure the safety of the public as well as the event participants while the event is shutting down and equipment and nets are being removed. There will be several hundred feet of nets that will be pulled from the shoreline area.

    Other Information: The event this year will bring in over 2,500 registered kids as well as their families, friends and general members of the public.

    Information Contact: Jana Gillotte, (360) 906-6705.

    No no no, you took that out of context Joe. I was meaning the way the article said that the kids HAD to have a license... Good Lord I want any kid who wants to fish and hunt to have access to places to do so.:)
