National Trout Festival Still Seeking Sponsors for Kids’ Fishing Contest

The National Trout Festival is still looking for sponsors for its kids’ fishing contest.

“Sponsor a Trout” helps cover the cost of filling the pond with hundreds of trout for kids to catch.

Monday was the deadline to send in by mail, but they’re still accepting donations online, one fish for $30 or two for $50. Sponsors are welcome to place a business name as a gift or as a memoriam for a loved one who loved fishing, and make it possible for a kid to learn that same passion.

“It’s a real easy way for a community member or a smaller business to have a hand in helping out, making the event happen,” said Debbie Ball-Odeh, National Trout Festival secretary. “It’s not inexpensive to order seven hundred fifty trout it really isn’t.”

The National Trout festival runs April 21-25
