VANCOUVER, Wash.—Union volunteers were out in force Saturday, April 14, for the annual Klineline Kids Fishing event at Salmon Creek Park. Several unions donated money to the event, and members volunteered to help kids bait hooks, untangle lines, and catch fish.
The derby is put on by the Klineline Kids Fishing Nonprofit and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. It’s goal is to get more kids involved in fishing. Some 2,500 kids ages 5 to 14 and their parents attended. Kids got to keep two fish, and every child got a Zebco rod and reel.
