“Pure innocent joy taking a child fishing in a boat for their first time and the happiness they experienced during the day is priceless!” – Volunteer Boater, Strawberry Reservoir

“We absolutely loved this event and are definitely looking forward to it each year.   My son doesn’t talk alot but he loved every minute the captain and the other volunteer were amazing.  With fishing with him with explaining how to best get fish to driving the boat.  Absolutely a wonderful experience.” – Parent of Participant, Strawberry Reservoir
