SUMMER YOUTH FISHING PROGRAM
At Cabrillo Beach Pier in San Pedro
San Pedro - The City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks will again offer the Cabrillo Beach Pier Summer Youth Fishing Program in 2008. The program helps children ages 7-17 learn about fishing; the activity will be conducted Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., from June 23 through August 23.
Group trips, which have a $25 bait fee for a 25-participant maximum, are coordinated through Department of Recreation and Parks facilities, and reservations are required since availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations for individual anglers will also be accepted, with a fee of $6 per person. For more information, call (310) 548-7728.
The program will also include information on how to rig lines, tie hooks and bait and cast rods, as well as being environmentally responsible while fishing and following California Department of Fish and Game laws. Equipment will be provided, but not transportation.
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, which is near the pier, will be open for up-close observations of sea life. Groups wanting to visit the aquarium must also make reservations by calling (310) 548-7562.
