A Butler County park will be the location of a television show starting today.
The show is called Fishing University and is a “how-to” fishing program that airs to a national audience on the Outdoor Channel, WFN and the Sportsman Channel, according to its website. It’s hosted by Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier.
“They go out to different waterways and film themselves fishing,” Moraine State Park Manager Dustin Drew said. “As they do it, they give pointers and tips to fisherman on best ways to catch what they’re intending to catch.”
The show is set to fish and film at Moraine State Park’s Lake Arthur through Friday. It will air at different times throughout the year.
According to Drew, the park will not be paid a large sum of money to allow the shoot but the exposure will make the experience worth it.
“We charge a small permit fee to do commercial-type activities in the park and that’s the same regardless; it’s not just specific to this event. But the main benefit to us is the promotion and the exposure that we get,” he said.
This is the 31st year for the show. It films on 13 different lakes across the country each season.
