That's right - trout fishing in one of the five Lake Ridge Pools. Each year the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association stocks the Ridgewood pool with 700 trout for a community fish out. For the complete week long schedule and details see Trout Fishing.
My husband and numerous other Lake Ridge residents volunteer to assist in the program. Arthur was assigned the job of "fishin' hole monitor". The primary duties were to assist people who were reluctant to
- Put a worm on a hook or
- Take a fish off the hook
Arthur noticed a mother and her two small sons who were obviously in need of instruction. With lots of "guided discovery" the boys caught the first fish in their initial outing - one of them even agreed to have his picture taken with "Doctor Fish"
The morning was restricted to large groups such as Boy Scouts and people of all ages who were from handicapped groups. The smiles on their faces was all the reward the volunteers needed.
Activities such as this in the community are one of many reasons we have been pleased to make Lake Ridge our home and raise our family here for the past 26 years. We also considered
- Schools All grade levels in the community
- Commuting Options within Lake Ridge
- Recreation Something for everyone
- Shopping Three shopping centers in Lake Ridge
