Stone Mountain TU @ Mount Airy Kid’s Health Day
Stone Mountain Chapter of Trout Unlimited was well represented by our members at the Mount Airy Healthy Kid’s Outdoor Day. Below are just a few of the children that came out to do a little trout fishing in the Ararat River that is located in the town limits of Mount Airy. According to Dick Everhart, our project coordinator, the trout fishing was one of the most busy activities at the event. Kin Hodges, wildlife biologist for Surry County, provided the trout, bait, and equipment. Our members were in charge of helping make sure everyone had equipment, bait and if needed, help fishing. Thanks again to those who helped and thanks to Catrina Alexander of the Mount Airy Parks and Recreation for inviting us to help.The pictures below show Kin getting folks ready to start, Bob Pearson, our treasurer, helping a child to catch trout, and folks enjoying the day.
