Mount Hood Community College Pond - July 13
Members of OBPC came to the pond to instruct and assist kids from Camp Angelos who were here to learn to catch panfish. Sponsored by the Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation, this summer camp for kids teaches the basics of coldwater and warmwater fishing while providing other camp activities, such as arts and crafts, archery, hiking and rafting.
Over 80 kids attended, split into morning and afternoon groups.  Russ Miyada and Bob Judkins chaired the event with about 20 members assisting.  While normally the pond holds only bluegill and pumpkinseed at this time of year, we found that ODFW had also done a small stocking of rainbow trout to add to the mix.
Sometimes the catching was a little slow, but most of the kids landed fish and had a great time.

A fish ID poster was provided for the kids
