Ice Fishing for Families on Free Fishing Day

January 18, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 10:30 am

Beneath the snow and ice is a wondrous world of peril: oxygen starts to deplete, food is scarce, and water temperature is barely above 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Join us in search of fish that remain active under these conditions. Try to entice fish to the end of your line using lures and jigging techniques that mimic their natural food. Learn about fish adaptations by observing fish colors, fins, and mouthparts. Whether you fish for food, as a social gathering, or to be out in the elements, ice fishing is a great activity to foster your love for nature. 

**January 18 is New Hampshire’s Free Fishing Day – no charge for this event and no license required.**

For adults and families with children ages 9 and up
Call 603-968-7194 x 7 to register. 

Advance registration is required by noon the day before the program. If minimum enrollment is not met, programs may be canceled. Walk-ins may be accommodated if space is available.
