Served ever Wednesday, 5-7:30 p.m. Discover fishing fun with a child for free June 11-13 Three of Minnesota&apos;s eight state parks that are offering this summer's weekly I Can Fish pro- gram have sessions scheduled during Take-A-Kid Fishing week- end. At William O'Brien, Inter- state and Mille Lacs Kathio State Parks, rods, reels and bait will be provided so participants can join park naturalists and experienced fishing coaches for an afternoon of fishing. I Can Fish sessions at each park explore the basics of fishing, fish identification and angling tips and tricks. Thirty of Minnesota's 66 state parks offer loaner fishing equip- ment that can be used within the park when visiting. Even when it's not Take-A-Kid Fishing weekend, Minnesota residents may fish in a state park without a fishing license provided the body of water does not require a trout stamp. Anglers also must fish from shore or wade in water within the state park or from a boat or a float on a desig- nated lake within a Minnesota state park. "Fishingis one of the easiest and most-accessible outdoor activities in Minnesota," Kurre said. "Take a kid fishing and, come the end of the trip, you're both likely to be hooked." Celebrate the end of the school year with a potential angler-to-be by fishing for free with a child 15 or younger June 11-13 during Take-A- Kid Fishing weekend. "This is a great opportunity to discover fishing," said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). "Minne- sotans 16 or older who take a child 15 or younger fishing don't need a license that weekend, and oppor- tunities for inexperienced, begin- ning anglers abound throughout Minnesota." Getting started is easy. You don't need a boat, and the avail- ability of loaner equipment in some areas means you won't even need a pole or tackle. Start by visiting <www.mndnr. gov/takeakidfishing>, to learn some terminology, basic techniques and shore-fishing locations. Area and regional DNR fisheries offices throughout Minnesota also gladly will offer some good, old-fash- ioned angling advice about fishing spots that will keep young anglers happy and safe. The DNR's Fishing in the Neigh- borhood (FIN) program provides urban shore-fishing opportuni- ties across the metro with fam- ily-friendly settings, piers, loaner equipment at some locations and a real chance to catch quality fish.
