AWSMP’s Family Fun and Fish Day! has been popular since it began six years ago and this year was no exception. About 20 families attended with children of various ages to fish for free in the lake at the Kenneth Wilson State Campground. Many of the participants had never fished before today. Bluegill, pumpkinseed, and catfish were some of the fish caught by anglers during the day. Bass were observed but were too timid to take a bite on anyone’s line. A big thank you goes out to our partners at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for providing fishing tackle and bait, and to the volunteers from Trout Unlimited who provided instruction on everything from how to bait a hook to how to cast a line. We hope that you join us next year for this fun, family friendly event!
