The sixth Annual Take Me Fishin'! is a family fishing derby and nature event free to the public.
The fishing derby encourages healthy outdoor activities, sustainable recreation and a love of the Forest. It's also a great way to build community.

Department of Conservation and Recreation, MassWildlife, and Friends of Myles Standish State Forest provide everything you need for a great day of fishing and fun, including fishing poles, bait, fishing licenses, prizes, nature activities and more. Mass Wildlife even stocks the pond with trout.

Prizes will be awarded in several catagories.
