The fish in Lake 6 SLCC have been resting and eating well. (The Anglers stock the lake and feed the fish.) So far, there are five derbies scheduled in November. The dates will be in the October and November Splash.
For those who may not know what happens at the Anglers’ Derbies, we have fun and catch fish. We schedule with local schools to drop off the elementary and middle school youngsters about 9:00 a.m. (usually about 25 children). These schools are from areas where the kids haven’t had as many advantages as many of us were fortunate to have. We fish until about 11:30 a.m. The club furnishes all bait, tackle and adults to help with the fishing. A ratio of three to four fisherpersons to helper works well. Some kids have fishing experience, and some not so much. Helping a youngster catch their first fish is a great experience. Check out the Anglers booth at Cottonwood on October 4 and at SLCC on October 21. We can fill you in on the club’s activities.
To fund the school’s fishing trips and the equipment, the Anglers sponsor and sell items at the flea market held on the third Saturday of the month at the SLCC parking lot. The first flea market is September 16. You will find great bargains. The hours are 7:00-11:00 a.m. Donations to the Anglers are sold, and the proceeds go to support the fishing outings we sponsor. We need smallish items to sell. For donations, call Don Herring at 480-802-9320 for drop-off or pick up. For a booth of your own at the flea market, contact the SLCC office at the clubhouse. Only a $5.00 fee gets you a spot.
We would like/need you join the club. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month in the Mirror Room at SLCC at 7:00 p.m. Our next meeting will be September 5. See you there! Ladies are welcome.
