District of Columbia officials are helping kids try their hand at fishing.
The city is hosting a free family fishing event on Saturday at Fletcher's Cove on the C&O Canal.
City officials say that part of the C&O Canal will be specially stocked with fish, and kids can get help from expert instructors for free. Bait and loaner fishing gear are being provided at no cost.
No registration is required. The event is taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
