For Family Fishing Fun, Cranberry lets them off the hook
Anyone can learn the basics of fishing from Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission experts in one afternoon at the Graham Park fishing pond. Two separate four-hour outings will be offered this summer – once from 1:00 to 5:00 on Wednesday, June 22, and again from 1:00 to 5:00 on Wednesday, August 10. Anglers can either bring their own barbless fishing gear or have essential equipment and bait provided as part of their instruction. Family Fishing Fun is open to anyone age two or older. In addition to basic fishing technique, the class is designed to teach safety, outdoor etiquette, watershed education and more – specifically as it applies to fresh water fishing in Pennsylvania. The program provides participants an opportunity to ask experts for advice, to learn about the aquatic environment, to spend quality family time, and to try catching the elusive Graham Park bass and bluegill before returning them to the water. While the instruction is serious, the program itself is designed for fun. No fishing license is necessary for this catch-and-release-only event. However pre-registration with the Cranberry Parks & Recreation Department is required. The fee is $5, or $7 for non-residents. Online registration is available at either www.Cranberry4FUN.com/register, by phone at 724-779-4FUN (4386), or in person at the Parks & Recreation Customer Service Desk in the Cranberry Township Municipal Center. Fees are payable at the time of registration.
