Children age 12 and under will fish for Rainbow trout in the Hatchery’s ponds. Bait will be furnished. Volunteers will clean the fish and bag them with ice for the anglers to take home.

Various displays of fish, fish eggs and the history, flora and fauna of the Missouri river will be on display for visitors.

All events are free. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and bring their own rod and reel. Rods and reels will be available to any child not having one.
