SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will show anglers how to make the best of snowy, icy conditions at a Jan. 24, 2015 Family Ice Fishing Workshop on Lake of the Woods near Klamath Falls.

According to Mark Newell, ODFW outdoor skills coordinator, this will be a family friendly workshop open to adults, couples and families with children at least nine-years-old.

“It’s easy for the whole family to go ice fishing,” Newell said. “Add in a chance to play in the snow and you’ve got a great family outing.”

The workshop will go from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and participants will learn all the ice fishing basics – safety on the ice, appropriate gear and how to use it, and how to care for and clean their catch. The cost of the workshop is $52 per adult and $12 per child under age 18. This includes the use of equipment, instruction and lunch. The registration deadline is Jan. 16, 2015.

Children under 13 years old do not need a fishing license to participate, but adults must have a valid Oregon fishing license and youth ages 14-17 will need an Oregon juvenile angling license. Youth must be accompanied by a paying adult.

For more information about the workshop, and to register, go to the ODFW website.
