Kids 7 through 14 get to spend day on lake with a seasoned angler and his boat
GLEN ELDER — The 7th annual Glen Elder Youth Fishing Tournament will be held June 4, the first day of the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ Free Fishing Days. All youth ages 7 through 14 are encouraged to call the Glen Elder State Park office, 785-545-3345, to register before the limited number of spots are filled.

During the event, youngsters will ride with volunteer anglers in their boats for a day of fishing on Glen Elder Reservoir. Lunch will be provided, and all youth will receive a fishing pole, tackle, and prizes, with special awards going to the youngsters with the most fish and biggest fish of each species.

Anyone with a boat who would be willing to assist that day should call the office to sign up. This should be a great time for the entire family to visit the reservoir and have a fun weekend in the great outdoors.
