Clean up at the Boro dam yesterday. Thanks to Doylestwn Rotary and everyone that came out at 8:00 in the morning to help. It took less than two hours to do the job. Fish arrive Wednesday at 11:00 in the morning. Our lady of Mount Carmel and Linden Elementry Schools along with lots of kids from the area come help the fish in the pond. Pizza will be served to everyone there. Everyone is welcome to watch all these children in action. Fishing officially starts on this coming Saturday at 8:00 AM
Here are a few photos of happy kids at our annual opening day from years past.
Young fishermen enjoy friendly coaching from those who have been here before.
Kids who are under age 16 are able to participate in the fishing program.
Families get out together for a fun day with Spring in the air.
Doylestown’s Youth Fishing Program is fun for all ages.
Kids and parents alike make memories that will last a lifetime.
Trout ranging in size from 8 to 24 inches are purchased thanks to the support of our generous contributors. Getting the trout to Doylestown’s Borough Dam is only half the battle. It takes a community of students from area schools, as well as home-schooled and cyber-charter school students along with a cast of supporting players to get the trout from the trucks into the pond. For many this is just as much fun as opening day!
Carrying buckets of trout to the pond is a joyful labor for kids and adults alike
Kids take great delight in depositing their trout in the pond to await opening day.
The wait in line for buckets of trout becomes a fun, social and educational experience.
Students eagerly await turns to carry buckets of trout from the truck to the pond.
Trout are carefully netted and placed in buckets for students to take to the pond.
Recycled buckets are used by youth to transport the trout from the truck to the pond.
