Celebrate Trout Heritage Day with the kids in Madison tomorrow April 1st, when the Rapidan Chapter of Trout Unlimited and DGIF partner with Graves Mountain Lodge  for Trout Heritage Day and Kid’s Fishing Day.

Several hundred trout are stocked along a private section of the Rose River, solely for children under the age of 12 to experience the joy of fishing. This popular event is Saturday only and features educational exhibits and skill building activities. Youngsters can register from 8am – 3 pm to fish free and win prizes every hour.

DGIF will have furs, feathers, tracks and skulls for the youngsters to identify and goodie bags to take home.  A red corn snake will be featured at the DGIF exhibit for kids of all ages to hold and learn about their role in the food web.

Trout fishing expert Harry Murray will be hosting a seminar and fly fishing demonstrations.  Come join the fun on April 1st– no foolin!

And, Check the VDGIF website for details of other special stocking locations for Trout Heritage Day.
