Take a Kid Fishing Weekend in Minnesota

(Learfield News/St. Paul, MN) — June is Great Outdoors Month in Minnesota and the DNR is urging adults to get kids out to wet a line.

This weekend is Take-A-Kid Fishing Weekend where adults don’t have to have a fishing license if they take a child 15-years-old or younger with them to fish.

Take-A-Kid Fishing starts on Friday and continues through Sunday.

The DNR says fishing has a multi-billion effect on Minnesota’s economy and by taking kids fishing, you are creating future anglers for the state.
