Cast your line and hook onto Fishing Has No Boundaries.
The annual weekend of educational fishing and fun will be held May 30-31 at the Kiwanis Shelter in Oshkosh’s Menominee Park.
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Adapted Physical Education Program will partner with Fishing Has No Boundaries to advance its dedication to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities. With use of adapted fishing gear, the event can accommodate various special needs, including individuals in wheelchairs.
Daily events feature breakfast, lunch, and dinner; fishing on the lake and group meetings. Experienced fishing guides with boats or pontoons will advise participants on the use of fishing gear and fish cleaning. Attendees don’t need a fishing license.
Organizers are seeking volunteers to serve as fishing guides or to donate their pontoon or fishing boat for the weekend. Registration forms, boater owner information forms and additional information about the event can be found at www.uwosh.edu/coehs/departments/human-kinetics-health-education/fhnb-registration-form.
Of the $50 participation fee, $20 will go toward helping promote other Fishing Has No Boundaries events across the U.S.
