GRANBY, Colo. - The Hot Sulphur Springs office of Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting kids who are 12 and under to come to a free fishing clinic to be held at the Kaibab Kids Fishing Pond in Granby, Aug. 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Parks and Wildlife managers will teach kids the basics of rods, reels and lures, and explain to young anglers how fishing helps keep their lakes, rivers and streams healthy.
"We hope these kids become the anglers of tomorrow," said Granby area District Wildlife Manger Scott Murdoch. "Colorado needs a new generation that will not only enjoy this wonderful sport, but will also help maintain our fisheries and habitat."
Parents are welcome to come along and learn with their kids. The clinic is free, and rods and reels will be provided, but pre-registration is required.
Space is limited so please call the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Hot Sulphur Springs office at 970-725-6200 to reserve your space.
