Take A Kid Fishing

Dakota County Parks is offering an opportunity for kids, families and others to learn all about the basics of fishing while trying to reel in the big one.

Participants can enjoy an afternoon of fishing and learn from experts how to cast, tie knots, bait a hook and identify fish. Tips on boater safety, catch and release practices, and much more will be offered. All equipment and fishing supplies are provided.
 
Dakota County is partnering with other agencies and organizations to put on this event. Volunteers are needed.
