The officers put on their angler hats for Fish With A Cop! — a two-day free event Saturday to Sunday at Cabela's.

The children who went had access to education stations, games, photo booths, giveaways and chances to fish with the officers at a catch-and-release pond.

The kids learned rod rigging, knot tying, life jacket safety and fish identification.

The Gresham Police Department joined law enforcement agencies from around the region at the event.
