Take Your Daughter Fishing

Any body of water will do, but a small, secluded stream adds a certain magic to the occasion. Your regional Conservation Department office can help you locate good places for family fishing trips. The best advice is to take it easy, have fun and expect to get your feet wet. If you happen to accumulate a stringer of tasty pan-fish, all the better!
