Fishing expo scheduled for Saturday at Baker Lake

Posted by wlpo on May 18, 2011

There’s a good opportunity this weekend for youngsters to try their hands at fishing.

The 13th annual Kid’s Fishing Expo happens Saturday at Baker Lake in Peru from 9am until 2pm.  The free “how-to” clinic is for boys and girls ages 6 and up.

Barry Welbers with the Better Fishing Association says hopefully many kids take up fishing as a hobby after the expo.

The BFA and DNR will have live fishing displays, casting games, and refreshments.

You can hear a complete interview with Welbers by visiting the AM 1220 WLPO news page.
