The class will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday. 

The class covers fishing basics. The Department of Conservation will provide the equipment and the worms. Then you and your kids will have a chance to practice your fishing skills. 

All children who attend will be entered into a drawing at the end of the summer for a new fishing pole and tackle box.
