WYTHE COUNTY, Va. – Wythe County’s Parks & Recreation Department is teaming up with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (DGIF) to host a “Kids Fish Day” on Saturday, May 13, 2017.

The event is just one of dozens of activities DGIF will be hosting throughout the Commonwealth this year aimed at giving children 15 and under the first opportunity to fish in freshly stocked waters.

The 2017 Wythe County Kid’s Fish Day will be held at Cripple Creek’s Collin’s Cove / Cole Branch section (roughly midway between the communities of Cripple Creek and Ivanhoe, off Pope Rd.).

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to partner with DGIF to help promote this great activity for the young anglers of our community,” said Kevin Williams, director of Wythe County’s Parks & Recreation.

According to Williams, the event is slated to begin at 9 a.m. and last until 1 p.m.

Participants are encouraged to register (once at the event), as prizes will be awarded throughout the day.
