MassWildlife invites adults and families who want to learn to fish to join the fun at Upper Highland Lake in the DAR State Forest in Goshen (78 Cape Street) from 9a.m. – noon.  Feel free to arrive anytime between 9 and 11:30 a.m. You can bring your own equipment or borrow ours. Instructors will cover all the fishing basics from baiting, to setting up your line, and casting—and there will be plenty of time to fish and ask questions. This event is in cooperation with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).
The event is open to the public, no pre-registration necessary. Contact Jim Lagacy at [email protected] or 508-389-6309 for more information.
