Handicapped Fish Day

May 09, 2013

Handicapped Fish Day will be held on Wednesday, June 5, at Marr Park, one and one-half miles west of Ainsworth. The fishing will begin at 9 a.m. for all ages of handicapped citizens.

The Chicaqua Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America Inc. has helped sponsor Fish Day since 1948. This is an opportunity for handicapped persons to experience the recreation of fishing. Fishing poles and bait are provided to those who do not have this equipment.

A delicious porkburger meal will be provided by many volunteers after a morning of fishing.

Pat Hartsock is chairing the meal effort this year. If you would like to provide a salad or dessert item, please call her at WCDC in Washington at 653-7248. Fishing resumes at 1 p.m. with an award presentation to follow. Prizes will be awarded to several categories of catches for the day.
