CHARLESTON, Ore. – ODFW Outdoors will host an adult fly fishing class at Laverne County Park on the North Fork of the Coquille River on Saturday, June 5.
The class, which will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., is designed for new or beginning fly fishers and will include sessions on equipment, casting, aquatic insects and reading the water.
According to Gary Vonderohe, ODFW fish biologist, the class will be helpful for both new and experienced anglers.
“We have a lot of accomplished anglers who have been gear or bait fishing for years, but have always wanted to try fly fishing,” he said. “This class will be a great introduction to a new technique.”
The class costs $40 and includes use of all necessary equipment, instruction/materials and lunch. Go to the ODFW website for registration information http://www.dfw.state.or.us/outdoor_skills/workshops.asp, or call Gary Vonderohe at 541-888-5515 for more information.
