Women of all ages will have a chance to trout fish for free at Maramec Spring Park on Saturday, September 9th. Fishing will start at 7:30 a.m. and continue until 7:15 p.m. There is no fishing license or daily trout tag required for women during this free event. A special area of the spring branch will be roped off for use by female anglers only.
Not only is the event free, but there will be 100 tagged prize fish stocked into the fishing area. When an angler catches one of these fish they can win an assortment of prizes, like a fishing rod, vest, tackle box, or net.
To help newcomers discover the joys of trout fishing, there will be plenty of fishing instruction offered as well. Informal instruction will be offered including basic trout fishing tactics, casting, cleaning and cooking your catch. Also some free trout tacos will be available for tasting.
Men are welcome to fish the rest of the park below the women’s fishing area, with the purchase of a daily tag. Bring the whole family to enjoy the day!
