The annual William Walter Catch a Fish Day is coming up Saturday morning, and kids 12 and under are invited to attend and compete. It is free to attend, and bait will be supplied for all kids that fish.
Mike Walter organizes the event each year with his wife Lori. He says even if kids do not have a pole, they hope to have enough poles to make sure every child in attendance can fish.
Walter says he and his wife put the event on each year in memory of their son.
The event will be at Kiwanis Park at Lake Taylorville and the fishing will start at 8 a.m. Saturday. Walter asks that participants arrive before 8 to register.
