After receiving her free fishing rod, Kylee Hahn, 4, of Cheney wastes no time hauling her mom out to the beach at Clear Lake to try her hand at catching trout during the annual Kids Fish-In on May 1. About 80 volunteers helped around 900 kids get outfitted to catch fish during the annual event sponsored by local fishing clubs, Zebco, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Fairchild Air Force Base.

Carson Blakesley of Post Falls caught one of the few really big rainbows swimming with the more average-sized trout in the net pens set up at Clear Lake for the annual Kids Fish-In on May 1. Colby Price, in the background, caught a big one, too. Both boys are 5 years old.
