Every spring the DNR conducts a series of “Learn to Fish” classes for both youth and adults. The clinics are free, and everything needed is included to have a great day fishing if you don’t have your own gear.

Turns out I’m a little late posting this for what looks like a pretty neat Bass Fishing class taking place THIS WEEKEND at Bong (but contact Reid Urban at the Wisconsin DNR if you’re interested, even though the registration deadline has passed. You never know!)

Kids fishing clinics will be held on April 14 at various fishing holes around the area all across Milwaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha Counties.

Finally, don’t forget that the first weekend in June is always “Free Fishing Weekend” where adults (16 and over) can fish without a license throughout the state of Wisconsin!
