Fishing day in Lowellville

LOWELLVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) — Getting kids interested in fishing was the goal Sunday at the Lowellville Rod and Gun Club as it hosted the Passport to Fishing program.

Run by the state division of wildlife, the program teaches fishing skills and techniques to beginning anglers.

But that’s not all.

“We gave them all reels and rods and a tackle box completely equipped,” said Claire Kopcsos, of Lowellville.

The 52 kids took part Sunday.

And they will get a chance to put their new skills to the test.

On May 3, the club is holding a kids fishing day.

It’s open to anyone 17 and younger and no license is required.
