California Travel Tips

Think Your Child Can Fish? Try It at Kern River Valley Kids Fishing Derby

Published on: May 05, 2012

Picture this: Aubrey B., a young girl who had never fished and didn’t even have her own fishing pole, brought in a 3 pound catfish in last year’s Kids Fishing Derby at Wofford Heights, Calif. Of course she won first place in her age group. Why is her story so important to parents? Because children learn life skills and connect with healthier food sources when they are taught to fish. Fishing in California is one of the most important outdoor sports opportunities offering lessons that stay with youngsters throughout their lives.
