Letcher County Tourism Free Fishing Day June 1

Letcher County Tourism is having a free Kids Fishing Day event on Saturday June 1at Fishpond Lake. The event is free to attend, and you do not need a fishing license to participate. Each child will need to be accompanied by at least one adult. Bring your own chair and a pole and some bait. Letcher County Judge Executive Terry Adams will be giving away some bait but there is a limited amount. And officials say as an added bonus this year the Bushcraft Meetup in the Mountains is the same weekend and they will teach any kid who wants to learn how to make primitive poles and bait to survive in the wild.
