(Victor Valley)– With the gift-giving season just around the corner, parents may be looking for a unique way for their children to get a break from the holiday hustle and bustle. The County of San Bernardino Regional Parks’ December Junior Fishing Workshop at Cucamonga Guasti Park just might be the answer for that much needed ‘breather’ in the great outdoors.
The workshop will be held December 14, from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at Cucamonga Guasti Regional Park, 800 North Archibald Avenue, Ontario.
Boys and girls ages 7 to 15 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 in the lakes at the park. 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 $8 registration fee. Registration for this workshop is due five days prior to the event. Registration forms can be obtained online by visiting the parks website at www.sbcounty.gov/parks. There is a $10 vehicle entry on the day of the event.
For those families unable to attend this event, we will be hosting several workshops through the trout season.
