Take Dad Fishing for Father’s Day!
CONCORD, N.H. -- Give your dad some outdoor adventure this Father’s Day -- June 20, 2010 -- take him fishing! It's a great way to spend time together, enjoy New Hampshire's scenic natural beauty and match wits with trout or bass.
Why not give Dad a gift he can enjoy all year long -- a fishing license! Go to www.fishnh.com to buy licenses online, or visit a local license agent near you (find a list on the Fish and Game website). Permanent licenses are issued free to residents of New Hampshire who are 68 years of age or older, provided that they have been a New Hampshire resident for at least two years. One-day N.H. resident fishing licenses are available for $10.
Get ideas on places to fish around the state -- either in freshwater or on the coast -- on the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s website, www.fishnh.com/Fishing/fishing.htm. You’ll find a current fishing report, tackle tips, recent stocking information and much more.
Another option is a guided fishing trip, which lets families concentrate on having fun together. You can find a list of licensed New Hampshire fishing guides on the Fish and Game website at www.fishnh.com/Fishing/fishing_guides.htm, or call the local chamber of commerce in the area where you'll be fishing.
Make this a truly special Father’s Day -- fish New Hampshire and relax!
Purchases of hunting and fishing licenses help support the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's work to conserve, manage and protect the state's fish, wildlife and habitats. Visit www.fishnh.com.
