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!
