Hundreds of kids and their families flocked to Lake Casitas Saturday for the lake’s annual Kid’s Fishing Day. Lake officials cordoned off an area of water on the docks in the marina, where 2,000 Nebraska Tailwalker trout were planted. Kids of all ages had the opportunity to catch a fish — often for the first time. Some of the young anglers recoiled with uncertainty as their fish was pulled out of the water by volunteers wielding nets. The majority however, lit up with excitement as fish leapt out of the water, tugging on lines and bending poles.
