Get hands-on education prizes during spring break

LITTLE ROCK — The Family and Community Fisheries Program is presenting some unique angling opportunities at each of the four Arkansas Game and Fish Commission nature centers around the state. Hundreds of rainbow trout and channel catfish are being stocked to provide some exciting opportunities for children on their spring break.

As an added incentive, 25 fish at each nature center location will be tagged for special prizes that can be claimed at the centers. Each of the uniquely-themed nature centers presents a great opportunity to get hands-on learning about science in the outdoors.

Basic fishing classes also will be held at each of the centers. Children 15 years of age and younger will learn about basic fishing skills. Youngsters at each of the classes will get the opportunity to win one of 15 new rod-n-reel combos, just in time for spring break.
