Kids, BLM, MTFWP and CMR Enjoy Kids Fishing Day


Over 100 kids enjoyed a great Lewistown Kids Fishing Day recently at the Frog Ponds near the west edge of Lewistown, Montana.

About 105 kids participated in this year’s kids fishing day and everyone (kids and parents) were thrilled with the fantastic weather as the temperature warmed and the wind rested throughout the day. 

The kids were all treated to a light lunch; entertainment and information about fishing and the outdoors; and best of all, free fishing equipment and the chance to use that new equipment.
 
“I’m not sure how many fish were caught, but everyone enjoyed the day and I think some of the kids will be hooked on fishing and the outdoors forever,” offered Adam Carr, one of the BLM staffers who helped with the event.
 
This year’s Lewistown Kids Fishing Day was organized and sponsored by the Bureau of Land Management; Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks; and the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge.


The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
