My name is Matt Vertner, Co-Owner of Bobber Boyz Sporting Goods.
I am writing to NewsLincolnCounty.com to see if you will put out information about the free fishing weekend that is happening on June 2nd and 3rd on the Salmon River.
This year the Salmon River Fish Hatchery in Otis is putting fish into one of their holding ponds for kids to come have a good time and catch fish.
My business contacted them to inquire how we could help. But they sadly said due to budget cuts they will not be having a fish contest or any giveaways for the kids.
So we volunteered to sponsor the event and keep the contest going. And we got our local Bi-Mart to donate prizes!
When I was young I went to the event every year and that made me an avid fisherman. I learned how to fish and enjoy the great outdoors. If you could help us get the word out to everyone to come to the event that would be great. It is completely free for the kids to enter the tournament.
Thank you very much for your time.
