Free Kids' Fishing Clinic
Every Sunday the folks at Dana Wharf offer a free kids' fishing clinic, providing dockside experience for young anglers. Experts offer tips along with new fishing techniques, hook tying secrets, and raffle prizes.
No reservations are required, but as with all recurring events it's a good idea to double check for time changes before heading out.
After the free clinic, kids can participate in a half-day fishing trip for free if they choose (including free rental gear), if they're accompanied by a paying adult. This offer is available on the 12:45pm trip, immediately following the free fishing workshop. Adults pay $46, and the trip goes from 12:45pm-5:45pm. Any adult without a fishing permit also needs to pay the $15 license fee.
Sign up a week or two in advance for the Dana Wharf Kids' Club, and the fishing trip can be even cheaper.
