Join AWSMP for Fam­i­ly Fun and Fish Day on Sep­tem­ber 18th

Fish­ing with the fam­i­ly is a great way to con­nect with each oth­er and expe­ri­ence the great out­doors! After being on hia­tus last year due to the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic, we’re proud to say that we’re bring­ing this pop­u­lar and fam­i­ly-friend­ly event back this year, albeit in a small­er and more social­ly-dis­tanced way. The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram (AWSMP) in coop­er­a­tion with Trout Unlim­it­ed and the New York State Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion (DEC) is host­ing “Fam­i­ly Fun and Fish Day” at Ken­neth Wil­son State Camp­ground at 859 Wit­ten­berg Road, Mount Trem­per, NY on Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

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. Please let us know in advance if you have spe­cial needs relat­ed to the day’s activities.

Due to the ongo­ing pan­dem­ic we ask that all par­tic­i­pants not from the same house­hold main­tain at least six feet of dis­tance apart and to wear masks if this is not pos­si­ble. All forms must be filled out and received pri­or to the event. Par­tic­i­pants who fail to fill out the required forms, fail to adhere to Covid-19 safe­ty guide­lines, or fail to fol­low staff direc­tion will not be allowed to par­tic­i­pate in the program.

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

For the safe­ty of all of our pro­gram par­tic­i­pants we kind­ly ask that you leave your pets at home.

For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Brent Gotsch at 845–688-3047 ext. 103, or by email at DEC charges a $6 fee per car for admis­sion to the camp­ground — all oth­er activ­i­ties at Fam­i­ly Fun and Fish Day are free.

Reg­is­ter by Sep­tem­ber 15, 2021 in order to participate.
