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.

For more information, call the Auburn Senior Activity Center at 253-931-3016.

ALSO: The Senior Activity Center brochure is now available at the Senior Activity Center and lists the diverse programs and activities offered to meet the needs of all Auburn seniors. Registration is now open for programs, classes and events offered in May and June. Interested participants may register via Auburn@Play on-line at www.auburnwa.gov, in person at the Auburn Senior Activity Center at 808 Ninth Street SE or by calling 253-931-3016.
