Junior Angler

View flyer

Location: Britton Park.  Junior Angler classes provide activities that introduce youth (ages 6+) to the life-long sport of fishing. The classes accentuate active learning by following a hands-on format. Class participants will practice new skills, solve problems, and make decisions. The primary goals of the classes are to: 1) provide young anglers with confidence in their basic fishing knowledge and skills, 2) promote ethical behavior in fishing and towards aquatic habitats, and 3) instill in young anglers the desire to get out and go fishing. Pre-registration required. Register Now $25/$27 per student
