KFGO-Radio: Annual Take a Kid Fishing Weekend starts today

EXCERPT: “During Take a Kid Fishing Weekend Friday, June 5, to Sunday, June 7, Minnesota residents can fish without licenses if they take children 15 or younger along fishing, too. ‘Taking your kids fishing is a lot of fun and a great way to get them connected to the outdoors,’ said Benji Kohn, volunteer mentor program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. ‘It also teaches kids patience, builds their confidence and results in a great family bonding experience’ . . . In the Twin Cities area, people can find accessible piers and shore fishing locations, and lakes stocked with fish, by going to the DNR’s Fishing in the Neighborhood website. For fishing locations in greater Minnesota, Minnesota Great Outdoors offers an excellent online mapping tool.” FULL STORY: https://fluence-media.co/2ALMZGd
