Fall fishing action kicks into high gear as the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ Get Out and Fish! event series heads to north Louisiana. Join us for an exciting opportunity to catch rainbow trout donated by Greer’s National Fish Hatchery. The event is scheduled for Saturday, December 10 fro 8 a.m. until noon at Kiroli Park at 820 Kiroli Road in West Monroe.
This free event hosted by Kiroli Park, the City of West Monroe and LDWF will include fun fishing activities for all ages including a mobile touch tank, casting inflatable and more.
The first 100 youth participants to register will receive a goody bag. You can pre-register for this event at www.wlf.la.gov/get-out-and-fish-1.
In addition, every participant will be entered into a raffle drawing for various prizes. Lunch will be provided by Catfish Charlie’s.
Fishing competition categories will include heaviest rainbow trout and heaviest “other” fish. Age divisions include Little Angler (ages 8 and under), Junior Angler (ages 9 to 15) and Adult Angler (ages 16 and older). Don’t forget to bring your own gear, bait and tackle, and an ice chest to keep your fish.

The Get Out and Fish! program seeks to increase the number of people with access to quality fishing. The event series was established to recruit new anglers to the sport of fishing and promote outdoor activities for future generations.
