Hawley Environmental Students Learn About Fishing And Then Fish

On Wednesday, May 9th, Learn 2 Fish With Us traveled to Wisconsin Dells, Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center to teach students from Hawley Environmental School on the skills and equipment needed to fish.  Hawley Environment School is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and very few of the students have an opportunity to get into the outdoors, so they take a couple days to experience the outdoors.

Captain Greg started out the afternoon with his Fishing Basics seminar and was followed by fishing on the Wisconsin River.  The group was split into two groups so that the Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers could help the kids while fishing.  Fishing was difficult due to the high waters and heavy current in the river.  Two students did manage to catch two small mouth.

Thanks to the NPAA all the youth went hope with Future Pro shirt and a AIS water bottle and Shakespeare educational book.
