Fishing as a family in the summer is a great way to hook their interest in outdoor activities.

As spring turns into summer, fishing often becomes a family affair. This is the time of year to focus on taking kids fishing. All across the Midwest, we are fortunate to have good fishing in every state. Simple angling adventures can be used to build outdoor passions in the next generation. Combine fishing with travel and camping, and you’ll be creating memories the youth in your life will never forget.

Midwestern summers are meant for days at the lake. As most head out to enjoy the weekend on crowded waters, anglers are left to find locations where the wake of a wave runner won’t interrupt their enjoyment. There are plenty of places to find peace and quiet during the summer, you just have to know where to look.
