Over 60 children ages 12 and under took part Saturday morning in the "Troutacular" kids fishing day program at Cub Creek Park.
The event was sponsored by the Town of Wilkesboro.
"We had a great day," said Andrew Carlton, the town planner who was in charge of the event. "With parents and guardians, we had over 150 people taking part."
Also helping was Kevin Hining, an agent with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, who gave out "goody bags" with lures and information on fishing on the stocking of Cub Creek and fishing in the state.
Ken Youngquist of SurvivalTek outfitters in Moravian Falls gave demonstrations on starting a fire without a match, and cooking fish on a campfire.
The wildlife commission stocked the creek with 450 trout prior to the event. While the fish weren't biting early in the day, said Carlton," they started hitting as the weather warmed up. We had at least 100 trout caught between 9 a.m. and noon."
