June 9, 2018
Special to The Chronicle , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

It's wet, it's wild, a bit slimy perhaps but kids love it! The popular sport of fishing is one that can be enjoyed for a lifetime and provides opportunities to enjoy nature and unwind from day to day stress.

If you know a boy or girl, age 9 to 13, who would like to learn more about fishing, a one day Fishing Basics Seminar will be held on Tuesday, June 19, at Otter Creek Lake and Park.

The seminar is co-hosted by the Tama County Conservation Board and Tama County ISU Extension and Outreach.
