Rapidan TU Kid’s Fishing Day
April 7 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Rapidan TU will hold its 38th annual Kid’s Fishing Day on Saturday, April 7, on the Rose River at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, Virginia as the major activity of Graves Mountain Lodge’s Heritage Day event. DGIF heavily stocks the Graves Mountain Lodge section of the river with trout and reserves the river for children 12 years old and under only. Children 13-18 years old may fish in a stocked lake on a catch and release, artificial lures only basis. Rapidan TU volunteers, supported by Northern Virginia TU and Northern Shenandoah Valley TU, also provide hands-on fly and spin casting, fly tying, and knot tying instructions and collect aquatic insects from the river for viewing and identification. Information on conservation, habitat management, stream monitoring and the annual Trout Unlimited Tri-State Conservation and Fishing Camp is offered. Other concessions, exhibits and activities are provided by Graves Mountain Lodge and DGIF. See rapidantu.org.
