Kids Fishing Festival

Enjoy a day of fishing fun!

Kids are invited to Columbia Springs to enjoy a day of fishing and fun activities. Each registered participant is guaranteed to catch a trout to take home. Fishing gear and a fishing mentor are provided. The first hour of the event is reserved for children with special needs. Click here to see photos from the 2014 Kids Fishing Festival!
