  • The Rolla Parks and Recreation Department, Missouri Department of Conservation, Mark Twain National Forest Service, Phelps County Bank, Key Sport, Toad’s Sportsman Shop and Rolla Optimist Club are hosting a day of fishing for children and their families this Saturday, May 3, at Ber Juan Lake.
    Community youngsters, ages 15 and younger, are invited to bring their fishing poles, tackle boxes and bait and take part in the annual Kids’ Fishing Fair from 9 a.m. to noon at the lake, located behind The Centre at 1200 N. Holloway St.
    There will be a number of demonstrations and crafts.
    At 9:30 a.m., there will be a fly casting contest sponsored by Missouri Trout Hunter.
    At 10:30 a.m., there will be a pole casting contest sponsored by Bass Masters.
    At 11 a.m., there will be a fish cleaning demonstration by Mark Twain National Forest Service.
    Children can also make a fish print T-shirt and other crafts to take home.
    There will also be a special prize for the child who caught the biggest fish during the event. Fish will be weighed and measured by the Missouri Conversation Department, which will also have some fishing poles families can use during the event if they don’t have one of their own. Worms will be provided by Toad’s Sportsman Shop.
    Every child fishing at the event will receive a free goodie bag and the first 50 children ages 15 and younger to register will receive a free gift. Youngsters are encouraged to pre-register at The Centre by Thursday, May 1. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
