'Learn 2 Fish with Us' May 16 at Hartman Creek State Park

WAUPACA, Wis. - People interested in learning how to fish can attend a free "Learn 2 Fish with Us" event on Saturday, May 16 at Hartman Creek State Park.

Learn 2 Fish with Us is a not-for-profit company founded by Greg Karch, a certified angler educator and instructor. Learn 2 Fish with Us has hosted more than 100 fishing clinics educating more than 15,000 anglers in Wisconsin since 2006.

Karch and volunteers will present a "Fishing Basics" seminar that reviews safety, open and closed faced combo reels, casting techniques, fish identification and parts of a fish, bait and aquatic invasive species.

The seminar will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Allen Lake shelter in the park. While the event is free, a daily or annual state park admission sticker is required for entry into the park.

This workshop schedule includes:

·       10 to 10:15 a.m. - Register

·       10:15 to 11 a.m. - Fishing Basics Seminar

·       11 to 11:30 a.m. - Practice casting with the youth and families

·       11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. - Go fishing (there will be fishing equipment and bait available or participants may bring their own )

·       12:30 to 12:45 p.m. - Hand out door prizes.

·       12:45 to 2 p.m. - Continue to fish and work with kids on casting by the water.

The first 50 children to register will receive a door prize and this will be a great token to draw. Prizes will be from Fishing Poles, T shirts, water bottles.

In 2013, Karch received an award from the National Professional Anglers Association for Outstanding Service and Dedication for helping to grow the sport of fishing.
