The seminar begins at noon through 3 p.m. at the Keystone Day-Use Area limited mobility access ramp.
"I catch some of my biggest fish with a fly rod from shore during November," says Park Manager Craig Preston. "Fly fishing takes knowledge and practice but it is one of most fun and rewarding ways to catch a fish."
Preston adds that the class is great for fly fishers of all ages and abilities.
"It's not everyday you have access to accomplished fly fishermen," he said. "Whether you stay for an hour or are here for the entire seminar, it's a great opportunity and it should be lots of fun."
Participants are encouraged to bring their own gear but fly rods and other equipment will be provided depending on availability.
The seminar will take place rain, snow or shine and the appropriate clothing is recommended.
The event is free but a seven dollar daily or a $70 yearly state parks pass is required to enter the park.
Anyone 16 and over must have a valid fishing license. Youth under 14 are encouraged to attend but must be accompanied by an adult.
