Yakima Valley Kids Go Fishing at Sarg Hubbard Park

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.--About 1,000 kids and their families were "gone fishing" Saturday.

The Yakima Greenway Foundation stocked the Sarg Hubbard Park pond with more than 5,000 Rainbow Trout.

The $10 registration fee included a free rod, reel and bait. Kids were allowed to catch and keep up to two fish.

"It's cool cause you get to catch fish and you get a rod for free and food and bait," said Kennedy Russell.

Organizers said the money from "Kids Fish In" will help pay for the general maintenance of the Yakima Greenway.
