We are excited to officially announce our Virtual Youth Fishing Tournaments we are hosting for the summer with Ariel Foundation Park Conservancy! I am sure you are ready for summer to begin but are wondering what you can do. Since the threat of Covid-19 continues, our summer youth programs have been cancelled and it is with regret but we also value the importance of keeping everyone safe during this time.
We are working on developing programs to keep youth active through the summer so we invite you to participate in our Knox County Virtual Fishing Tournament series. This is going to be a great program provided to each participant free of cost as the Knox County Park District and our friends of the Ariel Foundation Park Conservancy, Kokosing Valley Jr Anglers and THR Creekside Home Inspections are sponsoring the event.
To view the tournament details, rules and how to register, please visit this link https://tourney.fishdonkey.com/… In order to participate you must have a mobile device and download an app called Fish Donkey. We are very excited to work with the developers of this app as we provide a unique tournament series this summer. We will be hosting (6) tournaments with the first one scheduled for Saturday, June 13 9:00 am -1:00 pm.
To register you must be 8-18 years of age. You must also fish a body of water within Knox County. Our park provides Wolf Run Park pond while Ariel Foundation Park provides several lakes and do not forget about the Kokosing River!
