More eating-size catfish will be added to the pond at Clay Hill Farms just in time for Kid’s Fishing Day, Saturday, June 15.

The pond at Clay Hill Farms is always well stocked but, owners want to make sure that every kid has a better to catch a “cat.”

All kids, ages five, to 15 are invited to participate in this day of free fishing at Clay Hill Farms in Pronto.

Kids’ Fishing Day will begin at 8 a.m. with hooks out of the water at 10:30 a.m. Registration will begin at 7 a.m.

“There is no guarantee that each kid will catch ‘the big one,’ but there is a guarantee that the pond will be teeming with eating-size catfish,” said Jerry Jinright, Pike County Conservation Officer.

Any child may participate in the Pike County Kids’ Fishing Day who is accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult.

Kids should bring a hat, sunglasses, bait, a rod and reel or cane pole, line and hook and ice chest for fish.

The annual Kids’ Fishing Day is sponsored by Wal-Mart, Alabama, the Alabama Conservation Enforcement Officers Association, the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division and Pike County TREASURE Forest.

The event is partially funded by the Federal Sport Fish Restoration Program.
