About this Event:

Come join MassWildlife for some hands-on fishing lessons! Adults and families who want to learn how to fish on their own will get instruction and have fun practicing skills including setting up a rod, baiting a hook, tying knots, casting, and identify fish. Bring your own equipment or borrow ours. When you arrive, instructors will cover the fishing basics with the balance of the time spent fishing! This class is designed for adults and families; participants ages 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. This event is part of an Earth Day Celebration at Forest Lake WMA and Access, other events include the Forest Lake WMA and Access Area cleanup at 9am, and at 11am, MassWildlife’s stocking truck will be on site and the public is invited to help stock the lake with trout.
