No limit on fun during DNR Fishing Day

On a beautiful summer day, there is no better place to be than in Sylvan Park in Lanesboro, Minn. with a fishing pole in your hand.

Many visitors with several area groups had the opportunity to spend a day not only fishing in Sylvan Park, but also enjoying a delicious lunch and great company at the same time.

The DNR held its annual Special Fishing Day 2016 at the park on Wednesday, June 8 as the weather made the day even more pleasant with sunshine.

Groups such ABC Works from Caledonia, Minn., Meadow Lakes Senior Living of Rochester, Minn., Fillmore County DAC of Preston, Minn. and The Arc Mower County from Austin, Minn. were just a few of the participants in the fishing event.

DNR Conservation Officers provided bait and some fishing poles for those who did not have their own to bring. The Conservation Officers were happy to help with baiting hooks and casting for anyone who preferred some assistance.

The DNR employees also removed fish from the hooks and gutted the any fish that participants wanted to take home.

Reenie Doering with ABC Works says that those in her group that participated in the fishing day liked coming to the event and “they all like to go fishing,” she said.

Karla Colsch, also with ABC Works, agreed with Doering, saying, “They enjoy this every year and look forward to it every year” and start thinking of next year’s fishing trip on the way home.

Joe Buchmann, bus driver for Meadow Lake Senior Living, stated they brought six people to Sylvan Park to fish this year. Buchmann has been bringing participants down to the event for four years and says, “The residents and I look forward to this every year,” and it is a good opportunity for them to get outside and be active.

Meadow Lakes Senior Living Activity Director Deb Schroeder has attended the annual fishing day for seven years and commented, “I enjoy coming down and seeing them fish,” as well as watching the ducks as many of those attending did.

Conservation Officer Trent Seamans attended the event for the first time, as he is “fresh out of the academy,” he said, and now works in the southern half of Olmsted County.

Seamans was a seasonal naturalist at Itasca State Park where he participated in similar events and he says they try to make it fun for those attending as he laughs .....
