Fishing - Region 6
Mon Jan 30 16:46:00 MST 2012
A free youth ice fishing clinic is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., Feb. 4 at Glasgow’s Home Run Pond.
The pond is located in Sullivan Park off the Fort Peck Highway on the east side of town. 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, but only one fishing rod per child can be used at a time.
Home Run Pond is officially designated as a state “Children’s Fishing Water,” so only youths 14 years old and under can fish there. Participants will be helped and supervised by staff from Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and various volunteers.
Because the Feb. 4 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, the Glasgow-Fort Peck Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited and the Glasgow Recreation Department. For more information, please call 228-3700 or 228-3723.
