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

Back by popular demand for the 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.

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.

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