Erie County Public Library Kid's Fishing Clinic

The staff at the Erie Public Library partnered with the SONS of Lake Erie on Saturday September 24th, 2022 and provided a hands on fishing experience for 15 children from 3 to 12 years old. The were accompanied by family members. Sixteen SONS volunteers and Library staff set up on the East Canal basin on Presque Isle Bay adjacent to the Blasco Library. The weather was nice and the participants were successful. They caught over fifty fish including perch, pumpkinseeds, blue gills, crappies and even a bass. The largest fish was a 7 3/4 inch perch caught by Jovi Scott. Prizes were given for  the largest fish in various categories.

The SONS have been partners with the Library on many projects over the years including setting up fishing displays and setting up a free rod, reel and tackle lending program which was set up over 25 years ago. Thi program allows individuals to borrow the fishing equipment just as one would do when borrowing a book.This program is very unique and has been recogognized nationally.
