Take a trip to DCR’s Blue Hills Reservation this weekend and try something new by participating in DCR’s Houghton’s Pond Fish Festival. On Saturday, July 23 from 10 to 3 p.m. at Houghton’s Pond DCR rangers and instructors from MassWildlife will be teaching how to use fishing rods, how to land a fish (reeling it in, removing the hook, and letting it back into the water safely) and what kinds of hooks and bait are most commonly used in fishing.

You don’t need a Massachusetts fishing license to participate, and the program is free to the public. Equipment will also be provided, but is limited, so if you have your own, please bring it along! Crafts, games, and other fishy activities will also take place during the festival.
