Wisconsin’s waters are buzzing with fish this time of the year and the DNR is offering classes in the Milwaukee and Madison areas to teach adults how to properly fish for their food and serve it.

During the classes adults will learn knot-tying, casting, fish identification, and preparing the catch for a meal. Winter classes are $15.00, registration deadline is December 27, 2016.
