-( Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is sponsoring an ice fishing class near Fort Peck, over Jan. 4-5, 2019.

The event will begin with an evening “classroom” portion on Fri., Jan. 4 from 6-8 p.m., at the Fort Peck Interpretive Center.  Anglers will learn about ice fishing gear, tactics, dressing to stay warm, how to be safe on the ice, and more.

On Sat. morning from 8 a.m.-12 p.m., anglers will be on the ice where they can try out ice augers, fishing shelters, tip-ups, electronics, and hopefully catch some fish!  The exact fishing location is yet to be determined but will be in the Fort Peck area.

All ice fishing equipment will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment if they have it available and/or want to learn more about it.  Please note that both women that are brand new to ice fishing and women who are experienced but want to learn more about safety and tips are encouraged to attend.

This class is designed for women.  Class size is limited, so please get your applications in as soon as possible.  Snacks and drinks will be provided, and there will be a $15 fee to offset costs.
