MEREDITH — New Hampshire Fish and Game officials are putting on a free clinic to show children how to fish on the ice.
The Laconia Citizen reports the program, called "Let's Go Fishing", will take place on Feb. 13 during the Great Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby near the headquarters in Meredith Bay.
The clinic is designed for children and their parents to learn the basics of ice fishing from experienced conservation officers. It's geared toward children but anyone can come. A fishing license isn't needed to participate.
Derby spokeswoman Donna Ulbricht says there are families that have been fishing together for 20 years at the Great Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby.
She says classes like this are meant to educate children on proper fishing tactics.
