Junior Rangers Go Fishing
On June 12, 2010, young anglers and their parents took part in a fishing workshop at Lake Rebecca Park in Hastings, MN. The Mississippi National River and Recreation Area supplied tackle and bait while our rangers assisted participants with advice and encouragement. Despite the persistant drizzle we had a great time and just about everyone caught at least one fish, which included perch, bluegills, and largemouth bass.
