SPRINGFIELD, Ore. –Trout fishing can be a lot of fun, although if you are just starting out, it can also be a little daunting. To help anglers take the mystery out of what they need, where to go, and what to do, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is offering a free workshop on how to fish for trout in Oregon.

The workshop is geared for adults who are new to fishing. It will take place on Saturday, May 21 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at the River House, located at 301 N. Adams Street in Eugene.

Fishing licenses are not required to participate. The workshop starts in a classroom setting where students will learn the basics about fishing gear, regulations, and Oregon trout. They will finish up with casting instruction, using both spin casting and fly casting gear. Casting instruction will take place outside so students are encouraged to come prepared for Oregon weather.

As graduates of the workshop students will be prepared to test out their new skills on June 4-5 when ODFW offers Oregon residents and visitors a full weekend to fish, crab and clam without having to purchase a fishing license.

The workshop is free for adults and pre-registration is required. Space is limited so early registration is advised. To register call the River House (541) 682-5329, any City of Eugene Recreation Center, or go online at; click REGISTER and search for class number #121010.

For more information e-mail or call (541) 726-3515 ext. 28.
