FISHING -- Today is the deadline to register for the May 7 Spokane Kid’s Fishing Event for youths age 5-14.

The well-organized activity is staffed by dozens of volunteers from area fishing clubs, Fish and Wildlife Department employees and others.

The $10 per child fee includes a T-shirt, rod and reel, and help in catching and cleaning up to three trout.

Kids are assigned to 45-minute slots at the Fairchild AFB access site on Clear Lake.

Download registration forms or pick them up at the WDFW office at Spokane Valley's Mirabeau Point.
