Family Fishing Pond closed for stocking

Kennewick, WA- It may be a nice day tomorrow to take the kids fishing, but don't take them to the Family Fishing Pond in Columbia Park.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife has closed the pond to get ready for the annual Kids' fish-In.

Tomorrow game wardens will stock the pond with thousands of state hatchery trout.

Students at Kamiakin High School have also raised rainbow trout that will be swimming in the pond in time for Saturday's Fish-In. 

Fish and Wildlife hosts the event every year for more than one thousand registered families. 

The pond will re-open to all kids 14 and younger at four O' clock Saturday afternoon.
