Apart from that on Saturday from 1PM-2PM we will have a Bull Riding Expert in-store for a meet & greet and some autographing.

And on Sunday we will have a Best Cowboy or Cowgirl Contest! Now is the time to let any young ones live out their fantasy of being a cowboy or cowgirl and let them dress the part! Starting at 2:30PM kids can meet at our Main Fish Tank for the judging to begin! The winner will be selected at 3PM so don’t be late! And besides the honor of being this year’s Bass Pro Best Cowboy or Cowgirl, the winner will go home with a $50 Bass Pro Shops gift card!

Last but not least, the first 100 customers to attend the event both days will receive a cowboy hat key chain with light!

So this aint no time to get a hitch in your giddy-up, make sure you make it down for our PBR Weekend this year! Oh, and catch up on some of your western jargon beforehand!

Free Fishing Weekend

National Fishing and Boating Week is June 1-8 and many states celebrate free fishing days during that time. In Iowa, June 6-8 are a Free Fishing Weekend for Iowa residents. Not a fisherman (or woman)?  The first full weekend in June is set aside by the Iowa DNR as Free Fishing Weekend, so Iowa residents can give fishing a try without paying for a license. All other rules and regulations do apply.

This is also a perfect time to take kids fishing for the first time. the DNR schedules this weekend because it's typically the time when bluegills are closer to shore and a little Family Fishing - Bass Pro Shops Altoonafeistier! Iowa has many great small county and state parks where you can fish from the banks and give kids (and adults) a fun time fishing!

Not sure what basics you need to get started? Come on in to Bass Pro Shops Altoona and we will help you get the right basic gear to start, from hooks and bobbers, to the right fishing line, and a good basic rod and reel combo for you and the kids, plus some small lures or bait advice.

You can find a listing of free fishing days around the country at www.takemefishing.org/nfbw/.

Here is a listing of some of the many family and kids events in Iowa that are free during Free Fishing Weekend on June 7. Of course, if it's raining, bring the kids to Bass Pro Shops Altoona and they can fish inside for free in our Catch and Release pond that weekend!
