Come meet the instructors of Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (C.A.R.E.) as they teach you how to ice fish in the wintertime. Develop new skills if you already have experience and learn how to ice fish if you are a novice. Learn about ice safety, clothing, rules and regulations, local fishing spots, fish ID, and bait and tackle while also getting a close up look of the gear and equipment. Participants will then get invited to upcoming ice fishing events to practice their skills with the C.A.R.E. certified fishing instructors.
RSVPs are required as space will be on a first come, first serve basis.
This free event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
