Join the Fun!
Although we will not be hosting actual fishing at this Fishing Celebration, participants can get comfortable with fishing gear and techniques on land so that they will feel confident to venture out on the water by themselves, and we will share fun new information with those who already have experience with fishing. Battle Ground Lake is frequently stocked with Columbia Springs trout and will be open during our event for those kids and licensed individuals who bring their own gear and would like to try their luck after they visit our event.
