LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Three ice fishing clinics have been scheduled around Nebraska in January.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission's Youth Fishing Program will host two on-ice events: Jan. 12 at Lincoln's Holmes Lake from 1 to 4 p.m. and Jan. 20 at Kearney's Fort Kearny State Recreation Area Lake No. 6 from 8 a.m. until noon.
The Nebraska Fish and Game Association will host a classroom clinic Jan. 19 at Yanney Heritage Park's Environmental Resource Center in Kearney from 1 to 5 p.m. This clinic will feature presentations by some of Nebraska's top ice fishermen.
Seating is limited, so registration is requested by emailing Harold@nefga.org.
Limited loaner equipment will be available. Bait and instruction will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment.
A park entry permit is required at Fort Kearny. Cancellation of an on-ice clinic for lack of safe ice would be posted on Game and Parks' Facebook page.
