Heritage Fishing Day – Fort Smith, Arkansas

On May 18, the Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation will host a free fishing education program at the Janet Huckabee Arkansas River Nature Center (8300 Wells Lake Rd, Fort Smith, AR 72916) from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Heritage Fishing Program was developed for youth and adults who have little or no outdoor experience, but are interested in learning how to fish. It uses a learn-to-fish curriculum that will take you from the classroom, to the water, to the table.

The Heritage Fishing Program is offered to participants free of charge. You will learn how to cast, tie fishing knots, handle fish, and how to clean, prepare and cook your fish.




Again, this program is free to all participants – all educational materials, fishing equipment, bait and tackle will be provided. Participants will not be required to have license or permit during this event. This course is designed and intended for participants with little or no fishing experience. Youth must be accompanied by an adult. Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or physical ability, all are encouraged to participate.

For additional information or questions please contact Frank Price, Director of Education, at fprice@sportsmensalliance.org or 614-888-4868.
