New to fishing? Thought of taking the kids out, but havenít cast your line yet?
Join MetroParks of Butler County, Butler Soil and Water Conservation District, for Passport to Fishing. This is a program developed by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. The Division of Wildlife and their trained educators (thatís us!) use its curriculum as a beginning angler program for kids and teens.
Kids will learn the skills needed to fish and get time to practice these newly learned skills at the Elk Creek MetroPark - Meadow Ridge Area with these trained educators and experienced fishermen and women. These skills include knot tying and rigging, line casting, fish identification, aquatic habitat health, and more!
Registration is REQUIRED for this FREE program and space is limited. The age range for this program is children ages 8-17. Please only register participating children. At least one adult must stay on-site with participating child/children for the duration of the program.
