It's Trout Season at the Ridgewood Pool in Lake Ridge, VA

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executives

Entrance to Lake Ridge VA

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.

Karen that looks like a fun time. I have never seen a fishing tournament in a swimming pool.

Bill  Trout fishing before the pool is cleaned and painted for the summer months and a "Doggie Swim" right after the pools close for the year - we are different :)  Karen

Karen - That is such a wonderful community activity.  Such a program give many the opportunity to participate in a fun activity without having to go to a river or lake.
