The Fresno Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited continued a decades-old tradition Friday, bringing hundreds of children to Fresno Reservoir for a day of boating, fishing and education.

Kids Day had 300 fifth- and sixth-graders in the area scheduled to attend, with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks on hand to do some education about boating safety and about fish and wildlife.

Fresno Chapter members gave some pointers on how to cast and fish. The group also gave a new rod and reel to every child, and boat rides on the reservoir - then treated them all to a lunch of hot dogs and potato chips.
