If you’ve never experienced the rush of catching a fish, you’re really missing out. Feeling the tap-tap-tap of a fish nibbling on your bait and watching the bobber go underwater before reeling in your catch is simply a great and rewarding feeling for those of all ages. If you’re interested in getting into the sport, the Fulton-El Camino Recreation and Park District and the Fishing in the City program invite you out to Howe Park Pond (2201 Cottage Way) on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016 to take part in their free fishing instructional clinic! There is no need to get a fishing license or to even bring gear, as they’ll have up to 50 loaner rods with bait and tackle available. The pond will be stocked with catfish and there is no need to register, as it is first-come-first-serve. The event runs from 8:30 a.m.–noon. For more information call (916) 358-2872 or visit Fecrecpark.com, hit the “events” tab and look for the “Fishing in the City” link. Good luck out there!
