When the COVID-19 pandemic first started more than a year ago fishing areas were closed and many people who enjoyed a day at the lake were left to stay inside. Camping spots were closed and many areas of the forest were off limits. That's all changed Today with many people now out enjoying a day woods hiking and fishing. Kids love to get out and many have been inside for a long time so they're ready to have some fun and catch some fish. That's where the Yakima Greenway comes to save the day. Even though the pandemic continues kids are invited to enjoy fishing at Sarg Hubbard Park on Saturday and Sunday, April 17 and 18 during the annual Kids Fish In event. The event is held each year at the parks Reflection Pond. Because of the concern about COVID-19 the event is set to happen over two days allowing for proper social distancing and it also allows more kids and families to be involved.
Organizers say there's a limit of 50 kids per session. 8 different sessions are scheduled both days. They say it's a great way to get outdoors with the family and enjoy fishing close to home. The cost is $12 per child and that includes the rod/reel bait and a chance to catch a fish. The park is located at 111 South 18th Street in Yakima.
