Mills Fleet Farm Kids' Fishing Day

July 9, 2011

Fleet Farm Retail Outlets in MN

Mills Fleet Farm hosts the 10th annual Kids' Fishing Day on Saturday, July 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 11 Mills Fleet Farm locations throughout Minnesota. The event encourages participants to appreciate and learn basic kids fishing skills, such as casting, knot tying, fish identification, safety, and live bait use.

Minnesota Sea Grant is coordinating the staffing of Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!TM booths at the Mills Fleet Farm Kids' Fishing Day events to help educate fishers, young and old, about the problems caused by aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil. Sea Grant is also supplying materials and invasive species specimens to each of the booths.

Look for Minnesota Sea Grant's Marte Kitson and Dave Herbst at the Kids' Fishing Day events in Brainerd and Blaine. Representatives from other organizations will be available at Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!TM booths in other locations to answer questions and help fishers learn ways to prevent the spread of invaders.

Kids' Fishing Day is free and open to all kids. If you have any questions about the event, please visit the Customer Service Desk at one of the following Mills Fleet Farm locations: Alexandria, Blaine, Brainerd/Baxter, Brooklyn Park, Fergus Falls, Lakeville, Oakdale, Owatonna, Rochester, St. Cloud/Waite Park, and Winona.
