Posted:  Saturday, May 7, 2016 - 8:00am

Midcoast Conservancy will be hosting the annual Hooked on Fishing event, where kids get out on the water and experience the fun of fishing.

The event will be held at Damariscotta Lake State Park in Jefferson on Saturday, June 4, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Children of all experience levels are welcome; each child get an hour of fishing in prime fishing spots on Damariscotta Lake with experienced volunteer boaters as their personal guides. Mentors will be onshore to assist young anglers with equipment and to answer their questions about fishing. Midcoast Conservancy will provide all of the kids’ equipment (fishing poles, bait, boats, and life jackets) and the Whitefield Lions Club will cook up delicious food—all for free! Sign up today; one fishing rod will be given away, and admission to the Park is free for everyone coming to this event, compliments of Midcoast Conservancy.

Register at midcoastconservancy.org by June 2 to assure your space, or call (207) 389-5150.

The event is being co-sponsored by the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, and the Whitefield Lions Club.
