The noise level may have been high enough to scare off every bear, deer
and coyote for a 10-mile radius, but trees can’t run and the fish were
kept captive in the pond at Arizona Beach State Park long enough for the
third graders from Kalmiopsis Elementary School to catch a few.
Early Wednesday morning, third graders from Dawn Bennett’s and Ken
Olsen’s classrooms made their way to the pond to partake in Reel Fish
Day, an angler education class offered by the Oregon Department of Fish
and Wildlife (ODFW), Oregon Parks and Recreation (OPRD) and the South
Coast Watershed Council (SCWC), in conjuction with the Oregon South
Coast Fishermen (OSCF) and the Curry Anadromous Fishermen (CAF).
