Jake’s free fishing day in Kewaskum a success

June 6, 2021 – Kewaskum, Wi – They were starting them young on Saturday during the annual Jake’s free fishing day at River Hill Park in Kewaskum. The event was sponsored by the Gateway Gobblers, a Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF).

The youngest award-winning fisherman was 2-year-old Max Enright who caught a fish almost as big as the 10-incher his 4-year-old sister McKenna landed.

The event was open to kids under the age of 17.

Four hundred bluegills will be planted in the river Saturday morning. Prizes were
awarded for the largest bluegill in each age category.

The fish came from the North Star Fish Hatchery in Montour, IA, and ranged in size from 6 to 9 inches. The fish planting is coordinated between the Gateway Gobblers and Kettle Moraine chapter of Wings over Wisconsin.

The event is made possible thru generous donations from many local service organizations.
