Kids with disabilities will have the chance to "hook a big one" at Payson Lakes on Wednesday, June 5, thanks to a cooperative effort by the Tooele County Wildlife Federation, Utah Sportsmen's Alliance, Utah Valley Flyrodders, Uinta National Forest and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
The second annual "Payson Lakes Kids' Fishing Day" will bring together in a unique partnership students from Oquirrh Hills School in Tooele, Timp Industries in Lindon, local sportsmen, and forest and wildlife officers. This opportunity gives kids with disabilities a chance to experience the joy of fishing."Last year's event was a tremendous success. For many of these kids, this was their first fishing trip. The smiles on their faces were unforgettable," said Carol Nunn, Uinta National Forest project coordinator.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. at the Payson Lakes Day Use Area and conclude with a lunch, provided by the Springville/-Mapleton Lion's Club.
