The winter season is upon us and that means that it’s time to hit the ice in search of fish! Ice fishing is a great winter activity, but ice safety must be the priority for everyone heading out on the ice. A minimum of four inches of solid ice is the general rule for ice safety. Instructors will teach participants the basics of ice fishing and ice safety. Instruction will also cover equipment needs, fishing techniques and fish identification. A limited amount of equipment will be available for participants to use, as well as a limited supply of bait. Participants are urged to dress for the weather, as it will be extremely cold on the ice, bring something to sit on as well as any ice fishing equipment that may be available. This event is partially sponsored by Scheels, the Iowa DNR and the Johnson County Conservation Board.
Don’t worry! If there is no ice, we will have other outdoor winter fun events!
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public. A light lunch will be provided. Advance registration is requested, but not required. If you plan to bring a group of 6 or more, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; this will help us to plan for equipment and food preparation.
Remember to dress appropriately
Layers are always a great option for cold weather conditions. Bring a hat, gloves, and any other items you may need to be comfortable in the outdoors. Remember to check the wind chill and bring extra clothes if necessary
