Family Fishing Fun Scheduled

The Winnebago County Conservation Board (WCCB) and the North Iowa Area Community
College (NIACC) will be holding a Family Fishing Fun day at Thorpe Park’s Lake Catherine! The event will be held on Thursday, June 1st , from 9:00-11:00 AM. Thorpe Park is located 5 miles west of Forest City on “I”/345th Street.
During the Family Fishing Fun event, people of all ages can come learn about fishing, including which fish are found in Iowa, how to rig a line, how to cast, and some techniques for catching fish. Everyone will then be able to try their hand at actually catching some fish at Thorpe Park’s Lake Catherine! People can bring their own equipment or use equipment that will be provided. Handouts will also be available for people to take home with them.
The cost for the class will be $19/family, with registration through NIACC. Participants 16 and
older will need a valid Iowa state fishing license. To register, people can go to the NIACC web site and register for Class #14008 or they can contact Ashley Kraus at [email protected]. If anyone would like non-registration information about the class, they can contact WCCB Naturalist Lisa Ralls at [email protected].
