KENNEWICK, Wash. - The family fishing pond at Columbia Park in Kennewick is stocked and ready to be fished. Kids! Fishing Day is this Saturday.

Thousands of rainbow trout were trucked in and unloaded. Each fish averages about three pounds.

It's the 17th year this event has been held at the pond. It has become a long-standing tradition in the community.

Organizer Ken Johanning said, "A young father comes up and says, 'Mr. Johanning, that was me instead of my son 16 years ago,' so that's kind of a tearjerker."

It costs $10 a kid, ages 3 to 14, and includes the reel and bait.

There's still time to sign up in person at the pond until Friday.
