Fishing Program Off to a Great Start

Fishing-Class-Dunns-BridgeNext class set for Oct. 6 at Dunn's Bridge

Our free fishing program for families is off to a great start! And our next class takes place this Saturday, Oct. 6, at Dunn's Bridge, located off 500 East over the Kankakee River in Kouts.

This free program, called Go FishIN, gives kids the chance to learn the basics of fishing, such as tying knots, preparing a hook, casting properly and practicing fishing safety.

All equipment is provided thanks to a sponsorship by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, through a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association. The funding has allowed Porter County Parks and Recreation to acquire an array of equipment such as reels, rods and instructional literature.
