Kids Fishing Workshop
Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 8:45 AM to 12:30 PM
Offered this August, the workshop allows kids to learn some of the basics of fishing. The program begins with a short talk on fishing in general and an introduction of the teachers for the day. There are five or so stations to which small groups then rotate for a 15-20 minutes lesson. They learn about: tying knots, kinds of fish in the lake, salt water fishing, casting, where to fish on the lake, fly fishing. Volunteer anglers participate in teaching the kids these fundamentals. Santa Barbara County Fish and Game Commission underwrite these workshops. Attendance is limited to 50 kids ages 7 - 15. There is no fee for this event.
