From sacbee.com, fishing will be free across the state on September 3rd, 2011, and in Sacramento, novice anglers can take advantage of free lessons and equipment use on the same day.
Fishing in the City gives city dwellers an opportunity to learn how to fish, and to fish close to home. Ponds are stocked with trout in winter and catfish the rest of the year.
I did enjoy the Free Fishing Days page…
Have you ever felt the excitement of watching your bobber suddenly jiggle, then dive out of sight? Or feeling the tap-tap-tap of a bass as it tastes the worm on the end of your line? Or having a salmon practically tear the rod out of your hands as it smashes your lure? What’s that? You say you never learned to fish?
They said “rod.”
