Family Ice Fishing at Lake Rebecca (Hastings)

We supply the bait, poles, tackle, encouragement and instruction so all you need to do is show up and join us on the ice. We even drill the holes through which you fish, but you can drill your own if you wish! Be sure to join a ranger in a shelter and while warming up view the mysterious world below the ice through an underwater camera.

Do some good while helping us to celebrate service, and our most special places – national parks! RAVEs are great for adults and kids over 10 years old. This is a free event for volunteers – your only ticket is your service to the river! Sign-up is required since we have limited spots.
