68th Annual Ernest “Pig” Robertson Fishing Rodeos
This annual tradition has been a huge highlight that children in the area have come to love. Over the course of four days, children and Nursing Home residents may fish at Lake Spring Park during the event and catch up to six trout. Participants must provide their own fishing equipment and fish for themselves. Prizes will be given out throughout the four days. Trophies will be given out on the two Saturdays to the top fishermen/women.
