ODFW teams with 4-H to offer angler education training
March 29, 2011


SALEM, Ore. -- The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Oregon 4-H program will hold an Angler and Aquatic Education Instructor training on Saturday, April 23 in Redmond.

The training will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Deschutes County Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Redmond. The program is $25 per person and open to anyone 18 years or older interested in becoming a volunteer angling instructor.

Participants will qualify as both ODFW Angler Education Instructors and 4-H club leaders.

The eight-hour class will include basic fishing skills, stewardship, aquatic resources and water safety, and includes a primer on teaching techniques and creating lesson plans. The agenda also includes an overview of Oregon 4-H and opportunities to teach about sport fishing within the 4-H program.

According to Shahab Farzanegan, ODFW Aquatic and Angling Education Program coordinator, the program not only provides training and curriculum, it also has equipment and other supplies available for loan to instructors, and can help in planning and organizing fishing events.

“We encourage anyone who wants to share their love of fishing with young people and their families to become a volunteer angler education instructor,” said Farzanegan said. 4-H leaders, youth leaders, classroom teachers and fishing club members are encouraged to participate.

Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, April 20. Lunch will be provided. Visit for more details. Or contact David White (541) 548-6088 ext. 7953 or e-mail: for more information or to register.
