WAYNESVILLE, N.C. (May 12, 2014) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is offering two fishing workshops in May and June in Waynesville.

The workshops are free and open to participants 6 years old and older, with space limited and pre-registration required.

Participants will learn how to identify common fish, rig a fishing pole and bait a hook. All equipment and bait will be provided.

“The simple hands-on instruction, along with plenty of fishing, helps young anglers and fishing newcomers feel more comfortable and confident when they go fishing,” said Tanya Poole, the Commission’s mountain region education specialist. “Participants come away more knowledgeable and ready to have fun.”

Both events will be held on the campus of the N.C. Department of Agriculture’s Mountain Research Station, 265 Test Farm Road:

  • May 24, from 10 a.m. to noon    

  • June 19, from 10 a.m. to noon.
