Doniphan-Trumbull Elementary is seeking to provide an outdoor fishing experience for our elementary students on Friday, Oct 15, 2021. We have additional outdoor activities that will be taking place earlier in the day. We plan to be at Mormon Island State Recreation Area at approximately 12:30 PM and rotate groups of students through different stations. The school will plan the additional stations and activities. We are looking to partner with Nebraska Game and Parks to provide a learning to fish opportunity for our students. Hopefully we will have 30ish adults in addition to any volunteers that work with NE Game and Parks. School Contact: Rodney Engel, Elementary Principal.

Note: This event will require the use of the Fishing Activity Trailer form Kearney and at least five Youth Fishing Instructors. For more information and to discuss details, contact:, 402-471-5447.
