Come join us for a morning of fun learning about ice fishing! Participants will learn about ice fishing during a classroom portion followed by a hands on skills portion outside. Participants will need to dress in layers to accommodate the change in temperatures. In the event that there is not ice on the lake we will still hold the class. Participants are encouraged to purchase permits prior to the class, however they are not required for the duration of the workshop. Bring a sacked lunch as there are no local options, ice cleats are recommended and bring a bucket or chair to sit on while on the ice. Fishing supplies are available but limited, including bait. This class is open to all ages, however anyone 15 years of age or younger needs to be accompanied by an adult. This is a free class open to the public. Registration is required.
