I’m Hooked Federal Way, under the direction of Mr. Wilbert Warren, is entering its third year supporting a fishing event for students and families in Federal Way Washington.

 

Mr. Warren began by establishing a partnership with Illahee Middle School in the Federal Way School District in 2017 and followed that experience with the students and families of Woodmont K-8 School in 2018. Each of these events were held at Steel Lake Park in Federal Way Washington. Attending parents noted that the fishing experience was a highlight of an already exciting school year for their students.

Organized and staffed by I’m Hooked Inc, Portland Or., every student received a fishing pole to take home, cookbook, t-shirt, fishing tips and casting instructions. Students and families were also treated to lunch. In the last two years, the event was planned to coincide with the opening of the fishing season which is the last Saturday in April. The two previous events started at 7:00 am and concluded at 11:30 or noon. Attendance at the events and averaged 35 – 40 students and every student was accompanied by an adult.

For the 2019 event, I’m Hooked Federal Way is partnering with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Our contact at Washington State Fish and Wildlife is John Pahutski. John hosts multiple events across Washington for youth and families and with his involvement, we plan to increase our family and student participation from 45 to 250.
