Catch fish, feed eagles
WABASHA — Now you can learn to fish when going to the National Eagle Center in Wabasha.
The center is offering free use of fishing equipment for a few hours or a day to families visiting the center. The center received a grant from Take Me Fishing, with support from the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of natural resources to get the gear.
The goal is to get some fish for the center's eagles and for people to enjoy the Mississippi River that flows past the center in downtown Wabasha.
Visitors can check out rods, reels, life jackets, tackle and bait; Minnesota residents 15 and younger don't need licenses. You can bring your fish back to feed the eagles. If you do, you can get a Feeding the Eagles certificate.
For more information, call the center at (651) 565- 4989.
