LAKEPORT, Calif. — On June 15, 21 young people who gathered at Library Park in Lakeport were given the opportunity to learn and practice fishing skills.

Collaboration between the Clearlake Bassmasters and the Lake County Sheriff’s Activities League, both local nonprofit organizations, made sure that students had a great day.

Upon arriving, participants were divided into groups led by Bassmaster volunteers and given the opportunity to learn and practice knot tying and casting.

Important information about local fishing and water and sun safety were provided.

When ready, participants were fitted with a life vest and headed toward the docks to fish and enjoy a beautiful day at the lake.

The morning concluded with a raffle drawing and all participants won fishing equipment or supplies provided by both organizations. Parents, volunteers and participants then enjoyed a hotdog lunch provided by the Sheriff’s Activities League.

For a final surprise, the Bassmasters allowed each participant to take home the pole they had used that day. Life vests were offered at no cost to participating families by the Clearlake Bassmasters.

Volunteers from both of these organizations give generously of their time and resources to ensure that Lake County kids enjoy the outdoors and learn skills that contribute to the pursuit of positive leisure time activities.
