Mingo Creek Anglers Help out with South Park Youth Outdoors Day
On May 18, 2017, third graders from South Park School District had a event at Peters Creek in Jefferson Hills with 10 stations set up for the kids to visit. As the students moved through each station, the presenters were given 10 to 15 minutes to speak to each group. Mingo Creek Anglers were on hand to help with this event. They took a bass boat down for the kids to see and were able to give a short talk to the kids about bass fishing and PA B.A.S.S. Nation. In all, about 180 students took part in this event. All the students loved seeing the bass boat and they asked a ton of questions. What a great way to get the next generation excited for fishing!
