The first-ever Beyond Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop July 29-30 in northeast Montana will be dedicated to the art of walleye fishing on Fort Peck Reservoir.
Participants will fish for two days on the lake, camp at the remote Bone Trail access and sharpen their skills in sessions on boat and water safety, Dutch oven cooking, bird watching and the natural history of the Missouri River Breaks. The 20 participants in this first-annual event will also learn basic skills and advanced strategies for fishing the lake, operating a boat and camping in a remote area.
The workshop, "Walleye Fishing the Bone Trail," is presented by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks with the support of a variety of local merchants, organizations and volunteers.
Registration for the Beyond Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop begins July 5. To receive a registration packet, call FWP in Glasgow at 228-3700 or email Judy Elletson. The registration materials can be either mailed or emailed. Successful applicants will be notified by July 14. Completed registration forms must be returned to FWP within 5 days to ensure a space.
The two-day workshop is $50, which includes all meals, fishing gear, hands-on instruction by a cadre of experienced instructors, and a shirt.
The workshop is designed for women, but is open to anyone 18 years of age and over with a desire to learn new skills.
