Thankful for thick ice, hungry fish


February 22, 2018

Thank you to everyone who made our recent community ice-fishing event a great success. Takshanuk Watershed Council, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Haines, Community Youth Development, and Alaska Department of Fish & Game put together a fantastic outing for local youth on Feb.16, an ‘in-service’ day at the school. Nineteen kids (and some adults, too,) joined us on a sunny day out at Mosquito Lake. Jolanta Glabek of TWC and Rosalie Loewen of BBBS organized the kids and drove the van, Rich Chapell from ADF&G drilled the holes, and handed out fishing rods and helped with tackle, Derek Poinsette of TWC had a fire going, and Al Giddings of CYD had hot drinks and snacks and a helping hand for everyone. We are happy to report that fun was had and fish were caught!
