Registrations are underway for the 15th annual Wichita Eagle Kids Fishing Clinic, to be held June 11. Children 12 and under are eligible.

The clinic is in conjunction with the Great Plains Nature Center’s Walk With Wildlife at Chisholm Creek Park, 29th Street North and Woodlawn. The clinic is again sponsored by The Eagle and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, with assistance from the Flatland Fly Fishers Club.

There are two ways to register by the June 1 deadline:

▪ Registration forms can be found in The Eagle and also at The Eagle’s front counter, 825 E. Douglas.

▪ E-mail registrations can be sent to psmith@wichitaeagle.com, and must have the child’s name, age, mailing address and preference for morning or afternoon fishing. Incomplete registrations will not be accepted. No phone-in registrations are allowed.

The clinic is limited to 350 kids, and fishing is done in 30-minute time slots between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Assigned times will be mailed around June 1.

All fishing is catch-and-release and all equipment is provided. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Experienced volunteers will help the children if needed.

The clinic is free, though there is a $2 admission charge to enter the Walk With Wildlife. Do not send money with registrations.

For more information call 316-268-6240 or contact psmith@wichitaeagle.com.
