Clear Lake youth fishing day sign-up due April 19

May 1 was a little bit like Christmas at the annual Kids Fish-In on Clear Lake, where Spokane-area kids were allowed to choose from 1,200 fishing rods and reels before going out to catch a trout in net pens rigged for the event at Clear Lake. The kids were allowed to keep the rod and reel. RICH L ANDERS richl@spokesman.com

FISHING – The 2013 Youth Fishing Day at Clear Lake is set for May 4, but registration is due by April 19 so organizers can order the t-shirts and fishing rods given to each kid, ages 5 -14, at the event.
