Youth Fishing Instructor Workshops

Again this is not new news, just trying to spread the word:

Become a certified youth fishing instructor this fall

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will certify youth fishing instructors in Lincoln and North Platte this fall.

Workshop participants will receive training and tools to conduct youth fishing clinics. These volunteers will have access to Nebraska Game and Parks Commission loaner fishing equipment and educational materials for events. They also will receive program incentives.

Instructors are a key part of Game and Parks’ Youth Fishing Program, and they are encouraged to volunteer for such Game and Parks programs as Community Fishing Nights and the Outdoor Expos.

The workshops, which are scheduled from 2-6 p.m., are:

Sept. 29 – Nebraska Game and Parks Outdoor Education Center, 4703 N. 44th St., Lincoln

Oct. 20 – North Platte Fish Hatchery, 444 E. State Farm Road, North Platte

Contact Larry Pape at larry.pape@nebraska.gov to register, which is preferred but not required.

Let me also say this again:  Our volunteer youth fishing instructors are a HUGE asset!  There is a whole lot we would not be getting done without them.  Every time I am privileged to work with them I am impressed with their knowledge, patience, and passion!  THANK YOU!

For those of you who are avid anglers and are looking for a way to give back to the sport and the resources, we can use your help too!
