CONCORD, N.H. -- Are you looking for a new outdoor activity for these long winter months? How about ice fishing! The Lebanon Recreation Department and instructors from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's "Let's Go Fishing" Program will present a three-session program in Lebanon, N.H., on Wednesday, January 28, and Wednesday, February 4, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and Saturday, February 7, 2009, from noon to 4:00 p.m. Students are expected to attend all three sessions.
The class is free and open to anyone, however, those age 16 and under are encouraged to be accompanied by an adult.

The first two sessions will be held at the Lebanon Opera House, at 51 North Park Street, learning about ice fishing equipment, safety and practices, as well as winter ecology of lakes and ponds. On February 7, the class will head out to Mascoma Lake to put their newly learned skills to the test!
