Kids under 16 can learn to fish at State Forest State Park
CPW News Release
WALDEN, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife believes one of the best ways to inspire a lifelong love of nature begins with an introduction to the joys of fishing at an early age. Kids under 16 can begin that journey during a free Youth Fishing Clinic at State Forest State Park, Saturday, June 9, beginning at 10:30 a.m. at park's Ranger Lakes.
CPW personnel will help with tips, suggestions and techniques to help young anglers learn the basics, giving them enough knowledge to take up the activity on their own, or with friends or parents.
Kids can bring their own gear, or borrow tackle provided by CPW.
CPW encourages all participants to dress for conditions, bring sunscreen, insect repellent, food , snacks and water.
The Youth Fishing Clinic is free however, a valid State Park pass is required to enter the park, available for purchase at the Moose Visitor Center or Ranger Lakes self-serve fee station.
All state fishing regulations are in effect. Youth under 16 do not need a license to fish in Colorado.
Anyone 16 or older can purchase a fishing license at any Colorado Parks and Wildlife office - including the Moose Visitor Center - your local license vendor, or online at CPW's website.
