|Ford City, PA – Looking for a great way to connect with your family? Discover just how much fun fishing can be when you do it together at a Family Fishing Program. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be offering a free Family Fishing Program at Crooked Creek Lake on Saturday, July 31, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
You and your family will discover what it takes to be a “SMART” angler and learn basic fishing skills like knot tying, casting, baiting the hook, and taking a fish off the hook. After practicing these skills, you will have the opportunity to fish – no fishing license required. The PA Fish and Boat Commission will provide equipment and bait. The “catch?” Adults must bring a child and children must bring an adult. You will be learning and fishing together!
