(Victor Valley)– The County of San Bernardino Regional Parks is offering several fishing workshops for children during the 2015 trout season. Kids ages 7-15 can learn to fish from our park experts. Participants will rotate through five stations that introduce them to the basic fundamentals of trout fishing, and then will be given the opportunity to test their skills in a two-hour open fishing session. All equipment and tackle is provided and each child receives a souvenir t-shirt.
Junior Fishing Workshops held this 2015 season:
March 14 at Mojave Narrows Regional Park, 18000 Yates Road, Victorville

Each workshop is $8/child (due at time of registration), with a $10 vehicle entry fee. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
