Cameron County Bucktail Rod and Gun Club CCOYA
The Bucktail Rod & Gun Club’s Youth Ice Fishing event in memory of Russell E. Rhoades Jr. Has Been Scheduled for February 5th.
Russell passed away December 28 2017 at the young age of 30 years old. He was the Son of Rusty Sr. and Deanna Rhoades of Emporium. He was a 2006 graduate of CCHS and loved hunting and fishing. Russell volunteered his time to help with the previous Youth Ice Fishing events. He had a big heart and always enjoyed seeing young people become more involved in outdoor activities. Russell’s family is donating $25.00 to the youth that catches the largest fish (does not have to be a trout) during the times of the event.
This event is for youth 17 and younger and accompanied by an adult. Youth under the age of 16 do not need to possess a 2022 fishing license. Adults who are helping a very young angler can bait the hook and drop the line, however Kids have to set the hook and reel the fish in.
The event will begin at 10am and run until 2pm.
Fishing can be continued by anyone who wishes to stay. The clubhouse will be open so everyone will have the chance to warn up throughout the day. Hot chocolate, coffee and Hot dogs will be available for all those who participate.
The intention of this event is to introduce youth to ice fishing.
All Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations apply.
The sponsors encourage you to bring your own equipment, however there will be volunteers on hand to provide basic instruction and allowing participating youth the opportunity to use their equipment. This event may be cancelled due to unsafe ice conditions or inclement weather.
Please Register for the event by January 30, 2022. If you would like to register a youth or volunteer your time, please contact Taylor Gillette at (814) 562-0421 or via email email@example.com.
