The inaugural Lake Siskiyou Kids Fishing Day, scheduled May 25 in Mount Shasta, will take place in conjunction with the release of large rainbow trout from the Lake Siskiyou Trout Restoration Project. The trout were raised in net pens at the lake as part of an effort to improve the fishing quality for years to come.

The free event, which is co-sponsored by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and the Rotary Club of Mount Shasta, is open to youths 15 and under. Registration will begin at 8:45 a.m. at a site located on North Shore Road in Mount Shasta, and free bait and loaner rods will be available until 3 p.m. While it is recommended that adults accompany children, only youths 15 and under can fish at the event site. Volunteers will be available on site to answer questions about fishing.

“The goal of this youth event is to inspire increased participation of parents and their children in outdoors activities such as fishing,” said CDFW Environmental Scientist Monty Currier.

The Rotary Club of Mount Shasta raised the trout, which were supplied by CDFW in an ongoing effort to improve the fishery. The club constructed the pens at the Lake Siskiyou Marina, as part of a partnership that included CDFW, the Rotary Club of Mount Shasta and Siskiyou County. Additional support was provided by area foundations, organizations, volunteers and philanthropists.
