Mild May weather presented the perfect day for a Kid Fish event at Purtis Creek State Park May 11. Usually held the first Saturday in June, the event was moved because it is always legal to fish without a fishing license in Purtis Creek Lake, as long as you release any bass. All other fish may be kept. In the first week in June, the state lifts the fishing license requirement to encourage families to get outdoors and fish.
