Family Fun And Fish Day

The Ashokan Watershed Management Program in cooperation with the DEC is having another "Family Fun & Fish Day".  Here are the details they sent to me.

There's Still Time to Register for AWSMP's Family Fun and Fish Day 2016!

Fishing with the family is a great way to connect with each other and experience the great outdoors!

Back by popular demand for a fifth year in a row, the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is hosting “Family Fun & Fish Day” at Kenneth Wilson State Campground located at 859 Wittenberg Road in Mount Tremper, NY on Sunday, June 5 from 12:00pm to 2:30pm.

All fishing supplies will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own if you have them. No fishing license is required.

DEC fisheries staff and volunteers with local Trout Unlimited chapters will introduce youth and others to the sport of fishing and provide education on fish identification and aquatic ecology. Other family friendly activities include a barbeque, and arts and crafts under the pavilion starting at noon. Please let us know in advance if you have special needs related to the day’s activities.

You will need to register by June 1, 2016 in order to participate.
