Posted on: May 18th, 2015 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 fourth 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 Sat­ur­day, June 27 from 11:00am to 1:30pm.

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.
