The Michigan Department of Natural Resources wants to teach you to learn to fish this summer.
The DNR is inviting Michiana residents to participate in its "Hook, Line and Sinker" program.
The program is offered at more than 30 state parks and hatcheries.
Instructors will teach participants fishing basics, such as knot-tying, casting, selecting and using bait, and removing fish from the hook.
The "Hook, Line and Sinker" program is free but a recreation passport is needed for vehicles entering state parks.
Children under the age of 17 are not required to have a fishing license.
