A free youth ice-fishing clinic is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at Winter Harbor Pond in Fort Peck.
The pond is located near the northwest edge of the Downstream Campground, also known as Kiwanis Park. Holes will be drilled through the ice beforehand, and fishing rods, tackle and bait will be provided. Participants can bring their own gear if they prefer.
Clinic participants can learn various ways to catch different species of fish through the ice with assistance from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks' staff, the Glasgow-Fort Peck Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited and other volunteers. The clinic is open to youths 16 and under.
You have free articles remaining.
Because the Feb. 12 event is educational in nature, participants will be given a one-day exemption from needing a fishing license. The clinic will be cancelled if weather or ice conditions are deemed unsafe.
The clinic is sponsored by FWP and the Glasgow-Fort Peck Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited. For more information, call Ron Selden at 406-228-3723 or Ken Schmidt at 406-228-8487.
