Lewistown’s annual kids fishing day will take place June 1 this year at the Frog Ponds.
The 10 a.m. to noon free event will feature demonstrations on water safety, casting and fish identification. Everyone is welcome, however, the activities are geared for children ages 3-12.
Prizes will be available, including fishing poles, nets, tackle boxes, hats and more. The prizes were purchased at a discount from Don’s, the Sports Center, and Lewistown Sports.
Those who attend are encouraged to bring their own fishing tackle, and no one is required to have a fishing license on Saturday at the town’s Frog Ponds.
The event is sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the federal Bureau of Land Management. Volunteers from the local Walleye’s Unlimited and Trout Unlimited chapters will be on hand as well.
