Parents, grandparents and guardians will be able to take their kids and grandkids fishing for free on five Saturdays this spring and summer.
The DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Take a Kid Fishing program is designed to teach children and teens about the fundamental skills of fishing, as well as conservation concepts. Children ages 6 to 15 will be able to go fishing with a parent or guardian on April 20 at the Aquatic Resource Education Center in Smyrna; April 27 at Lums Pond State Park in Bear; May 18 at the Abbotts Mill Nature Center in Milford; June 15 for Father’s Day fishing at the Wilmington State Parks, and July 13 at the Judge Morris Estate in White Clay Creek State Park in Newark.
Fishing each day will begin at 10 a.m., and the dates will also feature activity stations and prizes. Anglers will still have to pay the entrance fees to get into the state parks.
