FISHING – Recognizing that entering the sport of fishing is difficult without the mentoring of friends or family, a five-hour Fishing 101 class for adults is being organized by the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council and the Washington Fish and Wildlife Department.
The free class starts at 10 a.m. on June 11 at Bunker's Resort on Williams Lake southwest of Cheney.
The event, with classroom and on-the-water instruction, coincides with Washington’s Free Fishing Weekend, so no fishing license will be required.
Volunteer anglers will teach students age 16 and older basic gear rigging, fishing methods, where to go – and even how to clean and cook the catch.
Pre-register for limited space to be filled first come, first served. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the WDFW Spokane Region Office, 892-1001.
Registration requires name, address, phone number and e-mail address if available.
