Kids' fishing at Jennings Park, Twin Lakes County Park

SMOKEY POINT — The Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club is once again treating children to family fishing events in time for the start of the fishing season.

Saturday, May 5, will see the Everett Steelhead and Salmon Club teaming up with the Marysville Kiwanis Club, John's Sporting Goods and the city of Marysville Parks and Recreation Department in sponsoring the 18th annual free fishing derby at Jennings Park from 8-11 a.m. for ages 5-12.

Children may bring their own equipment or use the equipment that is provided, and a limit of one fish per entrant will be enforced.

Door prizes and grand prizes will be determined by a random drawing of all participants, while the Marysville Kiwanis Club will be serving a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. in the pavilion.

The cost for the breakfast is $3 a plate for kids and $5 for adults, and all participants are asked to bring a canned food item to be donated to the Marysville Community Food Bank. Please leave pets at home.
