Waldoboro — The Lincoln County Fish & Game Association and Medomak Valley Land Trust again will partner to host the seventh annual "Hooked on Fishing Day" on Saturday, May 17 at 8 a.m. at Quarry Hill Farm.

All children under the age of 16 are invited to try their hand at fishing during this free event.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own poles, but there will be extra poles on hand to use.

Lunch, snacks and fishing bait will all be provided so the young anglers can focus on landing the largest catch. Sun block and bug spray are recommended, and rain gear if the forecast is uncertain.

Quarry Hill is a local spot to enjoy outdoor recreation and is a place to bring children for fishing. Quarry Hill is owned and managed by the Town of Waldoboro, and the property encompasses 321 acres of open fields and forest that have been permanently protected with a conservation easement held by the Medomak Valley Land Trust.

"With a dependable fishing hole and a beautiful scenic backdrop, everyone is sure to have a memorable day of fishing," said Liz Petruska, executive director of the MVLT.

Quarry Hill is located on Quarry Road, a right-hand turn off Depot Road, one mile north of Route 1. Signs for the event will be posted on Depot Road near the entrance.
