Special Needs Fishing Day is Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Some special guests will be wetting their lines at Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge this Saturday.

It's the refuge's 21st annual

Special Needs Fishing Day.

This area - the Outlet Fishing Area located just below Lake Darling Dam will be closed to the public Saturday morning through mid-afternoon to allow the big crowd access to the water.

Duane Anderson of the refuge says the workers, sponsors, and volunteers have a great time with the day - as do the special guests.

(Duane Anderson, Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge) "Talking to a couple of the organizations in Minot, some of their folks have been looking forward to this for several weeks - they keep asking when are we going fishing? So it is a very important and fun event for them, they remember it. And of course for the workers and the organizations that sponsor it, it's a very satisfying and gratifying day to help folks fish that don't normally have the opportunity to do that."

If you are interested in participating in the Special Needs Fishing Day Saturday at Upper Souris, contact the refuge.
