Kokomo’s Kids Fishing Clinic is a nationally recognized two-week long youth program where children between the ages of six to 15 learn almost every aspect of the great sport of fishing, taught by our areas most successful and knowledgeable anglers. What began as a youth fishing program has evolved into a regional event. All participants receive their own rod and reel and assorted fishing equipment. To date, more than 3,000 children have taken part in the event, held the last two weeks in July. In addition to informative class presentations, all students have the opportunity to take part in the graduation tournament where children compete from boats operated by qualified, adult boat captains.
Registrations will be held in June. All clinic details and information will appear in this outdoor column later this spring.
