Learn 2 Fish With Us Is Part of US Forest Service Kids Fishing Day During Wisconsin’s Free Fishing Weekend

Learn 2 Fish With Us volunteers Captain Greg  and Karen Karch  helped during the 23rd Annual Kids Fishing Day, which was hosted by the United States Forest Service.  Kids Fishing Day took place on Saturday, June 3rd at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center located in Ashland, Wisconsin.  Nearly two hundred youth attended the event which was held during Wisconsin’s Free Fishing Weekend.  Families registered for a time slot and then experienced the many fishing stations which included, casting, how to hold a fish, knot tying, Aquatic Invasive Species, keeping the lead out, parts of a fish, fish identification, safety while fishing and so much more.  Once the youth attended all the educational stations they went fishing in a stocked pond where many fish were caught.

The youth received many goodies in their bag which included hooks, hat, shirt, fishing educational book and other goodies.  Each family received a fishing combo thanks to all the great sponsors.
