We will be handing our fishing law books, and we will give those kids without equipment rods and reels as well as a tackle box with goodies.

This is Maine's free fishing weekend, so parents and accompanying adults can assist the kids without a license.

Map reading and compass use, and tree identification; 4 . Survival and First Aid. A free hot dog lunch will be provided. Please note that NO CELL PHONES WILL BE PERMITTED. There is no charge for this fun and educational experience!
