Introduction to Fishing on the Hoosic River

June 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Introduction to Fishing on the Hoosic River

Introduction to Fishing on the Hoosic RiverJoin HooRWA anglers on Saturday, June 3 from 9am-12noon for an Introduction to Fishing on the Hoosic River. This workshop is designed for beginners, including people who have never fished at all. The workshop will include information on the fish of the Hoosic River (types of fish, where they live, how to find them), overview of both fly fishing and spin fishing rods and reels, how to use both methods, basic knots, and how to get started as an angler.

June 3-4 is a free fishing weekend in Massachusetts, so we’ll be able to get on the water and try to catch some fish. A fishing license is not needed. (Note: If the waterflow is unsafe, we’ll just fish from shore.)

This is a rain or shine event, except in the event of severe weather.

The course is limited to 15 and preregistration is required. Children are very welcome! REGISTRATION IS FULL.

Meet at the picnic area just past “Lauren’s Launch” beyond the water treatment plant and across from the pond.

667 Simonds Rd, Williamstown, MA is the address of the Water Treatment Plant and it a left off Route 7 northboard (which is also Simonds Rd.) It’s basically a long driveway off Rt 7. Drive down this road and you will see Williamstown Transfer Station on right but continue on and Lauren’s Launch will be on the left.
