With the Mississippi River flowing in the middle of the Quad Cities along with the many ponds and lakes in the area, catching fish should be a pretty eventful activity. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley want you to do some fishing to help raise money for the organization and to win prizes at the same time.
