Learning to fish at Family Fun and Fish Day


Family Fun and Fish Day 2019

  • Sunday, May 19, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Fishing with the family is a great way to connect with each other and experience the great outdoors! Back by popular demand for the 7th year in a row, 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 Sunday, May 19 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 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. Other family friendly activities include a barbeque, arts and crafts, and educational activities under the pavilion. 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.

For more information, contact Brent Gotsch at 845-688-3047 ext. 3, or by email at bwg37@cornell.edu. DEC charges a $6 fee per car for admission to the campground -- all other activities at Family Fun and Fish Day are free.
