Anyone who wants to try fishing is invited to family fishing events happening at four locations over four days along the Mississippi River.
The events are geared toward anyone who doesn’t have much experience with fishing, lacks fishing equipment or wants to learn how to fish on the river’s edge. People can attend one or more days:
- Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park in Brooklyn Park, 4-8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15
- Boom Island Park in Minneapolis, 4-8 p.m. Friday Aug. 16
- Hidden Falls Regional Park in St. Paul, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17
