FISHING -- The annual Youth Steelhead Clinic for anglers ages 8-14 is set for October in Lewiston. Preregistration for limited slots is already open.
The clinics will run 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Oct. 26 and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on Oct. 28 at the Idaho Fish and Game regional office on 16th street in Lewiston.
The Thursday evening classroom session will cover the life history of a steelhead, fishing gear and fishing techniques.
On Saturday the students will be paired with a mentor taken out on a drift or jet boat to practice their new skills.
“This clinic has been a tradition for many years and we are happy to share our knowledge with area youth,” said Brett Bowersox, IFG fisheries biologist.
Clinic participants are required to have a 2017 Idaho fishing license. Idaho Fish and Game will supply fishing gear, boat and some snacks, while the youth should be dressed for the weather and bring a life jacket and lunch.
Preregister through Lewiston Parks & Recreation, (208) 746-2313.
