The 20th annual Pinecrest Lake Fish Faire will take place Saturday, a chance for kids to reel in fish and maybe some prizes.

The Stanislaus National Forest and its partners will offer fishing and casting contests and other activities in celebration of National Get Outdoors Day. The event is open to children up to age 16, accompanied by an adult.

It will feature humor and music by Bill Roberson, displays on outdoor recreation, a free hot dog lunch and an award ceremony. Smokey Bear, Sammy & Frances Fish and Woodsy Owl will attend.

Registration will be from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Pinecrest Amphitheater. Activities will run until 1 p.m. Pinecrest is off Highway 108 about 30 miles east of Sonora.

The co-sponsors include Pinecrest Lake Resort, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Kiwanis Club of Sonora and the Stanislaus National Forest Employees Association.
