A day of fishing fun can be had at Cato Park this afternoon.

Kids can take part in learning how to find the perfect fishing spot, tie knots, how to cast, identify fish and even build a water bottle spin caster for practicing at home.

"Back in the winter we had a fishing rodeo, and we have some leftover trout, so the Union Mission asked that we go ahead and harvest the rest of it, and they're going to take the trout and cook them up for meals,” Kelsey Gilbert, program coordinator for the city of Charleston, said.

The event runs until 4 p.m. Thursday and is free. Anyone 16 and under can attend.

Any fish caught will be donated to Union Mission.
