(Victor Valley)–Parents looking for a unique experience for their children will find that a Junior Fishing Workshop at a County of San Bernardino Regional Park just might be the answer for that much needed ‘breather’ in the great outdoors.
The next Junior Fishing Workshops will be held:
January 21, 2012 at Prado Regional Park, 16700 S. Euclid Ave., Chino.
February 4, 2012 at Glen Helen Regional Park, 2555 Glen Helen Pkwy., San Bernardino
February 18, 2012 at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park, 800 N. Archibald Ave., Ontario
Workshops begin at 7:30 a.m. and conclude at 1:00 p.m.
Boys and girls ages 7 to 13 will learn this favorite outdoor pastime under the instruction of expert teachers. The junior anglers will rotate through five hands-on stations, learning the basics of lake-shore fishing, including the anatomy of a fish; what gear to use and knot-tying; rules and safe practices; cleaning, cooking, and tasting; and tips for casting and catching.
Once the kids have completed the organized training, they can check-out a fishing rod and reel and practice their new skills at the lake. Each participant also gets their very own event t-shirt at the end of the workshop.
All equipment and tackle is provided for each child with the $7 registration fee. There is a $10 vehicle entry on the day of the event.
