It’s that time of year again! On June 4, 2016, at the ponds behind Topsham’s Solid Waste Facility you can fish, without a license, from 8am-11am! (Please note the change: usually, it is Father’s Day weekend, but it has been switched up this year.) This fun, outdoor opportunity is offered to you through a partnership between Topsham Public Library and Topsham Parks and Recreation Department. There will be prizes and even refreshments!
You don’t have a pole? That’s OK – we do! Fishing poles and bait will be available for people who need them.
Would you rather read about fishing than actually go fishing? We have that covered, too! You might want to try Fly Fishing the 41st: Around the World on the 41st Parallel by James Prosek. Or, how about Faithful Travelers: A Father, A Daughter, A Fly-Fishing Journey of the Heart by James Dodson. For something closer to home, try Fishing Maine by Tom Seymour.
Maybe you are looking for a book about fishing to read to your child or grandchild. Perhaps you might like to try Buck Wilder’s Small Fry Fishing Guide by Tim Smith and Mark Herrick. We also have a picture book, A Good Day’s Fishing by James Prosek, you might enjoy.
We hope to see you at the pond!
