GREEN BAY - We might not have scorching hot temperatures here, but it was a beautiful day for a little fishing.
People cast lines on Green Bay's City Deck as part of the Fishing at Large program. It's sponsored by the DNR and the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.
Anglers get the chance to try their luck fishing and learn how to identify fish.
Organizers say it's a great opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.
"We provide an opportunity for people to come fishing that normally don't have someone to go fishing with or don't have the equipment and we teach them about fishing resources," said Nick Lardinois, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Organizers say the program will continue Tuesday and Wednesday. They also say the program could be brought back later in the summer if there is enough interest.
