Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop dedicated to Fort Peck fishing

Applications will be taken starting this week for northeast Montana’s inaugural Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop. The Saturday, Aug. 11 event will be held on scenic Fort Peck Reservoir and is dedicated to learning the art of walleye fishing.

The overnight workshop will be based out of the Fort Peck Marina and features a day of hands-on fishing aboard boats and evening clinics on topics as diverse as bird identification, tackle craft and backing a boat trailer without being yelled at by a spouse. Participants will camp together along the shore of Fort Peck Reservoir.

The field is limited to 20 participants, and slots will be filled on a first-come basis starting this week. To request an application, stop by or call Fish, Wildlife & Parks’ Region 6 offices in Glasgow (228-3700) and Havre (265-6177) or email mnye@mt.gov <mailto:mnye@mt.gov> for an electronic application. The first 20 applications that are returned with the $25 registration fee will be guaranteed slots in the event. Successful applicants will be notified of their status by July 20.

"Fort Peck Walleye Safari" is presented by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks with the support of a variety of local merchants, organizations and volunteers. The workshop is designed for women, but is open to anyone 18 years of age and over with a desire to learn new skills. The $25 registration fee covers all meals, a T-shirt, fishing gear and hands-on instruction by a cadre of experienced instructors.
