Fishing' Not Just Wishin' with Jefferson County Exceptional Anglers May 14, 2010

The pier side is great; so it the shady side.

Anglers enjoyed fishing on the shady side of the lake.

This student caught a bluegill.

A fine channel catfish was caught on worms.

This experienced angler caught a largemouth bass.

Some students conquer their fear of catfish.


With Fishin' Not Just Wishin', it is all about the student anglers.  They take a picture of their fish home with them.


Some students are happy to let the volunteers hold the fish.


Jim Piper works behind the scenes to get the equipment working properly.

Several Conservation Officers were on hand to do whatever was necessary.

Students were able to touch fish at their own pace.

Students were able to enjoy other fun activities.

Students were given free tee shirts by the sponsors.  Volunteers and workers were able to purchase tee shirts.

Coco Cola was one of the sponsors.  Their cart was available to keep everyone hydrated.

Students liked learning how to fillet fish.

A handfull of volunteers kept fishing equipment working.

The fishing pier constructed by the donations of sponsors allows more anglers to fish safely, including those in wheel chairs.  Other students fish on the shady hillside.
