Kids Fishing Derby in Great Falls

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

A few days ago we reported on kids at North Middle School helping out the Walleye Unlimited group make fishing rods for kids to use at the Kids Fishing Derby. Well our own Joe Biega went down to today's fishing derby to check out how it all went. Thanks to two well known outdoor related groups, kids are casting their brand new lines in the annual Kids Fishing Derby at Wadsworth Park.

"Have a joint effort between Fish, Wildlife and Parks and Walleyes Unlimited. They give a Biological lesson and we supply the fishing poles the bait and hotdogs," explains Walleye Unlimited President, John Schilling.

This year fishing officials says more people may show up than in previous years.

"But on an average year we are looking at 7-800 and it may go above that," explains Schilling.

Taegan Greenwood is one of the youth out for a great day of fishing, she is hoping to land that big fish.

"I'm expecting to catch a Walleye or a Trout so," says Greenwood.

Greenwood says she is grateful that groups like Walleye Unlimited give kids the chance to learn a fun activity like fishing.

"I think it is amazing because my teacher used to talk about how Walleye Unlimited they were a big fishing group and I think it is great who they are actually thinking other people and stuff like that about fishing too," says Greenwood.

Walleye Unlimited President John Schilling says there is no shortage of fish for folks down here to catch and spend a great day as a family.

"There is a ton of fish in there so, all you have to do is just put it in front of the right fishes nose and {Gestures}," says Schilling.

Schilling also adds that they try to do this event every year, so if you missed it and wanted to work with the Walleye Unlimited group they have a kids camp coming up in August.
