Published DateHOLDERNESS — Squam Lakes Natural Science Center is holding a program about ice fishing for adults and children ages 8 and over on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Many people have seen bobhouses on New Hampshire' frozen lakes and ponds but ice fishing remains a mystery. What is is all about? How do fish survive without freezing? How can you tell the difference between types of fish? How is the lake changing under its frozen surface? Join the Science Center on the ice to discover the answers as participants drill holds, test water quality, bait hooks, and try to catch and identify some fish in Little Squam Lake. Adult must accompany children.
Cost: $7/member; $9/non-member.
