Posted on: May 3rd, 2017 by Brent Gotsch

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

Back by pop­u­lar demand for a sixth year in a row, AWSMP 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, Mount Trem­per, NY on Sat­ur­day, May 20 from 11:00am to 1:30pm.

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

Reg­is­ter by May 18, 2017 in order to par­tic­i­pate. Reg­is­ter online now by click­ing here.
