Senior adults, age 55 and older, are invited to fish during Senior Fishing Day next Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Fishing Day will be held at Auburn’s Mill Pond, located along Oravetz Road, across from Auburn Riverside High School.
The pond is normally designated for juvenile fishing only, however the Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Department has arranged for this special opportunity.
Thanks to the Green River Steelhead Trout Club and Auburn Sports and Marine, the pond has been stocked, and tackle and bait will be provided for those who need it.
No licenses are necessary, as the event is held during Washington State’s free fishing weekend.
A plaque will be awarded to the angler who catches the largest fish. Free hot dogs will be provided by Farrington Court.
