Listen to this post

RBC | Colorado Parks and Wildlife annual ‘Family Cast, Blast n Twang’ at the Wyman Museum in Craig will offer a fun twist this year. Anglers can catch one of five tagged trout and win a prize, or test your archery skills during the evening’s archery competition.

The free event is geared toward families and will begin at 4 p.m., June 22. Kids, moms, dads, aunts and uncles can have some fun and learn about the basics of fishing, the safe use of shotguns and how to properly use a bow. CPW officers and volunteers will help anyone interested in learning the basics in a safe, family environment.

“The event is a great time for families that want to spend time outdoors and enjoy hunting, fishing and archery,” said District Wildlife Manager Jeffrey Goncalves of Maybell. “If you and your family want to get outside and enjoy all Colorado has to offer, this event is perfect for you.

All angling equipment will be available free of charge, however, participants can bring their own fishing equipment if they prefer. CPW will provide all firearms and archery equipment. No personal firearms or bows are allowed.

Participants can enjoy a free meal and everyone should bring sunscreen and appropriate clothing to protect from the elements.

Anglers under the age of 16 can fish for free.

Co-Sponsors include the Wyman Museum, Northwest Colorado Outfitters Chapter, Mule Deer Foundation, RTS Hunting LLC/Visintainer RFW and A-1 Rooter.
