|Meadville, PA – Looking for a great way to connect with your family? Discover how much fun fishing can be when you do it together at a PA Fish and Boat Commission Family Fly Fishing Program. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the PA Fish and Boat Commission will be sponsoring a free Family Fly Fishing Program at Oil Creek State Park on Sunday, May 7, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Learn about basic fly fishing skills including types of gear, knots, and casting. Plenty of time fishing on the stream will be provided to top off the program.
You and your family will have the opportunity to fish at no cost since no fishing license will be required of anyone participating in the program. All equipment will be provided. The “catch”?? Adults must bring a child and children must bring an adult. You’ll be learning and fishing together. Participants must be eight years of age or older.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 20 people on a first come first served basis. For more information or to pre-register, contact the Oil Creek State Park office at (814) 676-5915. The program will be held rain or shine, so please dress for the weather.
