Youth Fishing Pond in Camp Sherman

by Ace (grade 4)

This year we’re helping build a fishing pond at the old fish hatchery in Camp Sherman! Kids will be coming from all around the state of Oregon to fish at the youth fishing pond here in Camp Sherman! There will be salmon and trout in the youth fishing pond. Some activities there will be fishing for kids, signs to look at plants to see, and in the summer, lots of butterflies on the milkweed. We have been making signs for the old fish hatchery pond. It will tell the plants names, types of fish, and ecology of the youth fishing pond. We also planted aspen trees, milkweed, rushes and sedges in the area around the pond to restore it. When is it going to open? We do not know yet, but we are thinking summer. That’s why we are helping the youth fishing pond. The youth fishing pond will be a good place for kids to fish and learn about the environment.
