YOUTH FISHING PROGRAM
MDR Anglers volunteers...
Also support the #KidsFishingInTheCity events at local parks. Dedicated MDRA members attend the DFW and County Dept of Parks events at various times and at local lakes. Where many children get their first experience fishing. At lakes stocked with fish. Often catfish. DFG brings the rods. Many volunteers from other groups show up too from LARR and WWSC and others supporting DFW.
The #FishingInTheCity program is helping to keep fishing alive for the future of sport and betterment of the Nature experience.
Teaching kids and their parents a few basics helps to take the stigma off of it and they are far more likely to go fishing or camping in the future.
The #MDRAnglers want to support fishing in the city and kids fishing. If you know of some group of lake fishermen or kids school age that want to start a new Lake based Fishing Club at Moore Lake in Kenneth Hahn Park or any other local Los Angeles city lake, please let us know. We may be able to sponsor them and offer start up help. The DFW representative says that if he has such a group it will make his work easier to justify fish plants. This November 5th of 2022 was sponsored with 1,500 lbs of catfish planted!
