Washington Legislative Sportsmen's Fish-In & Annual Shootout at Littlerock Events 15 February 2016

Washington Legislative Sportsmen's Fish-In & Annual Shootout at Littlerock Events

Monday, February 15, & Tuesday February 23, 2016

The truth is we had decided to do a fish-in instead of a shootout this year. We thought it might be easier during the short 60 day session. The shootout was so popular among legislators and staff that we had to add it back in so now we are doing both! 

Today, Monday, is President Day and kids are out of school and many come to the Olympia campus. Have we got a treat for them! Troutlodge is bringing a portable pool and 400 fish. Plenty of rods and wonderful volunteers will be helping.
