We are EXCITED to have a Pack 793 fishing day this year!
The Derby will be at the Spring Brook Trout farm in Renton, Wa. on Saturday June 29th from 10:00 ~ 11:00. After trying out the initial location of the old fishing hole and a few other locations, a decision was made to go to a spot where there is a greater chance for the scouts to actually catch a fish! This event qualifies your scout for the June event to earn a Summertime Pack pin for his shirt.
Since its opening in 1930, the trout farm experience has become an annual tradition for many Seattle-area families. It’s the perfect spot to learn the basics of fishing. Poles and bait are provided, there’s no need for a license, and there are friendly folks on hand to help.
And it gets better. Fishermen, and women, only pay for the fish they catch. The fish are about $6.50/each. Enjoy the park-like setting while fish farm hands clean and package your catch. Need a recipe idea? Springbrook has those, too. If the thought of cooking after a long day of fishing is too much to stomach, get it grilled at the farm and enjoy it right there.
The farm promises the highest quality of all sizes of rainbow trout from three different spring-fed ponds. One small pond is ideal for your littlest one.
You and the kids can spread your lunch out on one of the two covered picnic areas (includes barbeque grills), where you can grill your fish, and there is space for the kids to run and play in the ‘in-the-city,’ yet rustic atmosphere. A favorite attraction at the farm is a tree-house.
See you there!
