The DWR is hoping for great turnouts at the local ice fishing clinics this month. “It’s a really great opportunity to get outdoors during the cold winter months and experience fishing on an entirely new level,” shares Outreach Manager Tonya Kieffer. “I remember how leery I was about the ice when I, myself, first started ice fishing and I can say now that some of my best days fishing have been on the ice, in the dead of winter.” The clinics will teach anglers how to be prepared for a successful day ice fishing and what to expect. “When you’re prepared,” shares Tonya, “ice fishing can be the best time to fish. That’s the goal behind the ice fishing seminar and the two clinics; to help you prepare for the upcoming season.” The DWR has a seminar on January 6th from 4 to 6 at Sportsman’s Warehouse, on January 7th from 10 to 1 at Moose Pond, and on January 14th from 8 to 2 at Big Sandwash Reservoir.
