May 20, 2015 - WEBBER – Whether your child has yet to be introduced to fishing, or is already proficient at baiting a hook and casting, consider treating them to a free Kid’s Fishing Clinic at Lovewell State Park on June 7 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The clinic is open to youth ages 7-16 and will cover fish identification, knot tying, casting, lure selection, and fishing hot spots. Participants will also watch a demonstration on fish cleaning. Preregistration is required by June 1 and space is limited to 50 anglers. Parents can preregister their youth in person at the Lovewell State Park office, or by calling (785) 753-4971.
A hot dog lunch and drinks will be provided, made possible by donations from many area businesses. Following lunch, youth will have the opportunity to put their newly-acquired skills to the test and fish with a mentor until 3 p.m. All fishing equipment and supplies will be provided.
There is no cost to attend, however drivers without a park entrance permit will need to purchase a daily vehicle permit to enter the park.
For additional information, and to register your child, contact the Lovewell State Park office at (785) 753-4971.
