This is a Fishing Kids event, by the City of Lakewood, designed to provide all children the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.

The Ray Evans Memorial Fishing Event for Kids honors former resident and WWII hero Ray Evans. He and his wife Dottie have been long-time supporters of our local fishing event through their association with Trout Unlimited. Ray was a Navy Cross recipient for his heroic actions during the battle of Guadalcanal. Being on the water and doing water-based activities always brought a smile to his face. The only thing that made him even happier was to see children & youth enjoying the water as well. This event is a wonderful testament to his many years promoting fishing as a family event.  Join in the fun this year in one of the sessions listed below.
