Start off Spring by taking part in Reston Association’s annual Kids’ Trout Fishing Day on Saturday.

RA annually stocks the Snakeden Branch with trout and teams with Trout Unlimited to offer fishing fun for kids.

Here is what you need to know:

The event is for kids 12 and under and runs from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

Fishing will be at the Snakeden Branch stream between Soapstone Drive and Lake Audubon.

Free, but registration is required. Register near the 7-Eleven on Soapstone.

Trout Unlimited members will help clean the fish you catch.  

Volunteers will be on hand to teach how to bait, cast, hook and cook your fish.

Please wear shoes and clothes that can get wet and muddy. No sandals.

All kids must be accompanied by an adult. Teens and adults ages 16 & up who are helping must have a Virginia State Fishing License (Freshwater only), available online at www.dgif.state.va.us. Adults are not permitted to fish during kids’ fishing time.
