Fall Family Fishing Festival October 17 at Hempstead Lake State Park

by Chris Grech

Enjoy a family-oriented fishing festival on October 17 from 10 AM to 4 PM at Hempstead Lake State Park. No fishing license is required for this event, hosted by NYSDEC and NYS Parks.

Festival activities include fly-fishing instruction and casting practice with loaner rods, free bait and fish-cleaning services. Children can "cast" for pumpkins, then decorate their "catch" with the supplies provided.

More than 1,000 fish are stocked for this event. The festival also features exhibits from local fishing clubs, face painting and a magic show. Admission is $6 for everyone over the age of 12.

For additional information contact Bob McCormack of the NYS DEC at 631-444-0280.
