It isn’t often that you see an event being planned in the community and it makes you think of a Dr Seuss book. However the latest event being planned by the Lake Ridge Parks and Recreation Association is a “fishing trip.”
Trip might actually be a bit of a misnomer. Actually the fish are going to be in the Ridgewood swimming pool. Yes you read that correctly. The association is going to fill the pool with 700 rainbow trout and for $7.00 per person you can drop a line and catch your limit (of two). Now as someone who has a tendency to sea sickness the idea of fishing in a swimming pool has some appeal. However, as someone who really likes to swim I’m hoping that the pool gets a good scrubbing after the fishing party is over.
The fishing event doesn’t happen until March which is a good thing as I would assume otherwise you would be fishing for Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks. For families and the die hard anglers who can't wait until the ice thaws on the lakes it should be a fun event. If you like in Lake Ridge or the surrounding Prince William County area keep your eyes open for more information on the Ridgewood Pool Fish Out event coming in March.
