The U.S. Forest Service held its annual Kids Fishing Day at Cliffside Lake near Highlands on Saturday. The event gives children ages 15 and younger the chance to catch a fish.
Booths and games with prizes were sponsored by the Highlands Recreation Department along with the town of Highlands.
The Cradle of Forestry offered hot dogs to hungry fishermen.
According to organizers the event allows families and friends to share in the fun and quality outdoor time together while learning about one of the nation’s pastimes – fishing.
Kids Fishing Day was planned in conjunction with National Fishing and Boating week May 31-June 7.
