Klineline Kids Fishing Derby

Klineline Kids Fishing introduces kids to the benefits of fishing as an individual and family activity, and is aimed at getting more kids outdoors, involved in fishing, and aware of our natural environment. Over a two-day period 8000 to 10,000 people will gather at Salmon Creek Park/Klineline Pond in Vancouver, WA. to help children experience fishing, playing outside, and learning about water safety and our natural resources. To create stewards for our future fisheries we need to introduce children to the benefits of fishing as an individual and family activity, and as a way to become more aware of the outdoor environment. Kids fish in 45 minute increments throughout the day between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Kids are encouraged to visit and experience other hands-on activities in the park including an archery range, and educational kiosks. Prizes are awarded for the largest and smallest fish caught in each fishing session. Bicycles are awarded hourly.

LiUNA Local 737 is a proud sponsor of this event and needs volunteers to help man our booth and assist kids in fishing. Friday, April 7th is the Special Needs Kids fishing day from 8am-4pm and Saturday, April 8th is for all kids. You can also sign your child up to fish by going to
