Year of Fishing 2015 Planning is Underway
Posted: 08/05/2014

The Mississippi River Connections Collaborative’s (MRCC) series of events has taken a break for the year of 2014 and will resume in 2015 with the Year of Fishing. Planning is underway for the series of events and the group hopes to kick-off with some January ice fishing on the upper part of the Mississippi River.

As has been a goal for past series of events, like the Summer of Paddling 2012 and Year of Cycling 2013, MRCC strives to connect participants to the river through outdoor recreation and stewardship and encourages participants to continue that year’s activity on their own.
