About this Event:

Fishing 101 will be a new addition to our 101 series programs. Just like the
other 101 programs we offer here at The Outdoor Campus, Fishing 101 will
aim to remove as many barriers as possible that keep people from hitting
the water in the spring and summer.
The course will start with the basics and end with multiple fishing trips that
teach how to target fish in different types of water and different
approaches to catching them. Participants will have a chance to learn how
to make their own fishing rod, find fishing locations, use various fishing
techniques with different types of equipment, and clean, fillet and prepare
fish for the table.
Families with kids ages 10 and older, as well as adults, are welcome to join
the program. Everyone who attends will be considered a participant. Like
all programs here at The Outdoor Campus, the class is free, thanks to
revenue from hunting and fishing licenses. Participants will not need to
provide any of their own gear.
