Ice Fishing Clinic

February 22, 2023 , 9:00 am 3:00 pm


**CANCELLED: Due to warm weather conditions, the both clinic sessions are cancelled.**

Try a classic winter pastime this winter break – join a one-day youth ice fishing clinic! A great intro for any curious angler in grades 5-8, join us as we head out onto the ice in the Museum’s harbor to learn the basics of winter ice fishing with our friends at Vermont Fish & Wildlife’s Let’s Go Fishing program. We’ll learn about the gear needed, hole drilling, using a rod and jig, knots, ice safety, and fish identification. No gear needed. Please dress warmly (in layers) and wear winter boots. Yaxtraxs or ice cleats are also a great idea for traction. If the ice is deemed unsafe, we will cancel and send around notifications by email.

This is one of two ice fishing clinic days available. There is another clinic on February 24 from 9 am–3 pm.
