BRETT FRENCH/Gazette Staff

Northcentral Montana will have two free educational fishing days for youngsters this year in June.

The first takes place June 2 in Great Falls; the second occurs June 9 in Lewistown.

The 25th-annual kids fishing day in Great Falls will run 9 a.m. to noon at Wadsworth Pond on the west side of town.

As in past years, the Great Falls chapter of Walleyes Unlimited will give away a free rod and reel outfit or a tackle box to youngsters who complete a series of educational stations.

To reach Wadsworth Pond travel west on Central Avenue over Interstate 15, turn north on 34th St. NW, then turn west on Wilkinson Lane and follow to the park.

The June 9 event in Lewistown will be at the city’s Frog Ponds. Activities will run from 10 a.m. to noon and will feature demonstrations on water safety, casting and fish identification.

Prizes, purchased at local businesses, will be available, including fishing poles, nets, tackle boxes, hats and more.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring their own fishing tackle. No license is required for the day at either event.

There is no age limit, but the activities are geared to youngsters just learning how to fish.
