Adventure Ecology: Intro to Fishing on Squam

Freshwater fishing is a popular recreational activity on Squam that reels in many types of anglers from all over the world. On July 1st, 2016 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) is offering yet another Adventure Ecology program that will give participants a chance to learn about all things fishing, from fish ecology in Squam Lake, to a brief hands-on lesson about fishing in the freshwater areas of New Hampshire. After that, the remainder of the morning will be spent baiting hooks, casting lines, and catching fish. All you need to bring is a great attitude that is ready to learn, and the SLA will supply the fishing poles and non-lead tackle.

Your fishing guide, Squam Lakes Association conservation intern Jordan Jones, is a junior at the University of Maryland, and grew up on the eastern shore of Maryland where he spent a lot of his time fishing both in the ocean and freshwater rivers. Jordan has a passion for the outdoors, especially all things related to the water.

This event will be held at the Squam Lakes Association Headquarters, 534 U.S. Rt. 3 in Holderness. All ages 7-13 are welcome with parental guidance. For more information, or to sign up for this Adventure Ecology Program, click here or call 603-968-7336. Registration is required.

The SLA also offers other Adventure Ecology trips throughout the summer. Every Friday from June 17 through August 19, these free programs are open to the public and cover a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the Squam Conservation Interns who spend their summers on Squam performing important conservation work in support of the Association's mission.
