2013 National Trout Festival Kid’s Trout Pond

Each year, the kids of Kalkaska County come out to the trout pond in hopes of catching the elusive five pound Rainbow named “Fat Jack.” Along with the trophy rainbow, 50 2lb. tagged fish sponsored by our local business’ and citizens and hundreds of 1lb. trout are planted in the pond to help grow the next generation of outdoorsman. For each tagged rainbow in the pond, Jack’s provides trophies and prizes for the kids that bring their catch in. ¬†Here are this year’s trout anglers showing off their fish, prizes, and smiles.100_1373 100_1374 100_1372 100_1371 100_1367 100_1370 100_1369 100_1362 100_1361 100_1357 100_1356 100_1355 100_1354 100_1353 100_1352 100_1351 100_1350 100_1349 100_1348 100_1347 100_1346 100_1345 100_1343 100_1342 100_1341
