This Saturday, the community is invited to “a free, noncompetitive, family-friendly learn-to-fish event.” Organizers promote:

Learn some new skills, then go try to catch a fish!

The Drop-in Fishing Clinic is geared to teaching children aged 6-14. (Though, it’s not limited to those ages.) 

The event is at Hopkinton State Park from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Rods and gear will be provided, as well as free park admission.
