PULASKI – The Salmon River International Sport Fishing Museum hosts a “Celebrate Fishing” Show and Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6. Volunteers and people interested in all aspects of fishing are welcome to participate.
The museum and visitor center is located at 3044 state Route 13, east of the village of Pulaski. It is situated on 10 acres of land with a pond and fishing access to the Salmon River.

The event includes fishing seminars on beginning and advanced fishing techniques for young and old, a hands-on kids’ pool with live fish to touch and experience, a kids’ casting contest, fishing games, free books, and fishing tackle for all that attend.
