During the first Saturday of May, Friends of Castaic Lake kicked off their Fifth Annual Tom Stout Memorial Fishin’ and Fun for Kids Day.
A crowd of nearly 400 eager young anglers and their families gathered at upper Castaic Lake and were given free tackle boxes filled with Pautzke bait and a fishing rod courtesy of Sports Chalet.
Kids ages 15 and under then put their fishing skills to the test in a contained portion of the lake that lifeguards netted off and the Department of Fish and Game then stocked with trout, specifically for this event.
After fishing, the kids were treated to a free lunch from Costco and raffles/prizes were given away to the participants.
