Kidsburgh: Let’s Go Fishing


CONTROL LOOK LIKE? WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID TODAY. THEN, THE SURPRISES KEEP COMING FROM RYAN SHAY’S EAR. WHAT HE IS DOING TODAY, AT 6. PEOPLE MIGHT THINK THAT FISHING IS A RURAL RECREATION BUT RIGHT IN THE HEART OF PITTSBURGH, A GROUP OF PEOPLE ARE TEACHING KIDS TO FISH. IN TODAY’S KIDSBURGH REPORT , YOU CAN SEE HOW YOU CAN TRY IT ALSO. Reporter: A PROGRAM CALLED LET’S GO FISHING IS BRINGING COMMUNITIES TOGETHER. THE CITY KIDS, PITTSBURGH POLICE, AND FISHING ENTHUSIASTS. ALONG THE WAY, EVERYONE BENEFITS. IF YOU JUST DROP IT THERE YOU MIGHT HAVE A LITTLE LUCK. I’VE GOT IT. RIGHT IN THERE, PERFECT. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG FOR THE FISH TO BITE AT CARNEGIE LAKE IN HIGHLAND PARK. A SERENE SURPRISE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY OF PITTSBURGH . I THOUGHT THAT YOU COULD ONLY FISH IN THE WOODS AND STUFF. THIS IS DISPELLING ALL KINDS OF MYTHS. UNLESS WE GET THE MESSAGE OUT, IT IS GOING TO GET LOST. WE WILL BE BACK TO THAT OLD LIE, URBAN KIDS DON’T FISH AND YOU CAN SEE, THEY DO FISH. Reporter: SPENCER SIMON FOUNDED THE PROGRAM TO INTRODUCE FISHING TO URBAN KIDS. HIS GROUP HELPED TO PROVIDE FUNDING TO STOP — STOCK THE LAKE LAST YEAR. THE KIDS ARE LOVING IT. THIS GROUP HAS FINISHED EVERY WEEK THIS SUMMER. I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH A FISH AND I AM REALLY PROUD. IT IS THE STRENGTH THAT IT TAKES AND IT IS FUN. IT FEELS LIKE BEING AROUND FAMILY. Reporter: IT IS A GREAT WAY TO GET KIDS OUTSIDE , OFF TECHNOLOGY, AND MEETING NEW PEOPLE. THIS IS A NICE WAY TO ENGAGE OUR KIDS. WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT ANY KIND OF VIOLENT SPORTS. THERE IS NO VIOLENCE, EXCEPT TO THE FISH. IT IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO COME OUT AND INTERACT WITH THE KIDS AND SHOW THEM THAT WE ARE NOT JUST A FACE DRIVING BY IN THE POLICE CAR. I CAUGHT A BIG FISH RIGHT THERE. Reporter: THE LESSONS ARE MANY, AMONG THEM, HOW TO RELAX, APPRECIATE NATURE, AND BE PATIENT. WHEN YOU DON’T CATCH YOU KEEP TRYING. Reporter: THE CLUB HAS FREE FISHING ON CARNEGIE LAKE ON SATURDAYS FROM 9-2, AND A FAMILY FISHING FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7. IT IS COMPLETELY FREE. WE HAVE A LINK ON WHERE YOU CAN REGISTER.
