JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – While it’s common to find fish in a lake or a river, how about in a swimming pool?

Johnson City Police Department’s annual Say Yes to Fishing, Say No to Drugs Fishout is set for this weekend.

Legion Street Pool will be filled with 2,000 rainbow trout. Kids ages 3 to 14 will then be able to fish for the trout for free.

The police department said it will also have prizes at the event.

Volunteers will be on-hand to clean the fish and kids can take them home to cook.

Say Yes to Fishing and No to Drugs Fishout kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday and will continue until 4 p.m.

On Sunday, the entire community is invited to fish for the remaining trout from noon to 5 p.m.

The cost to participate will be $10 an hour and proceeds will go to the Fishout program.
