Get the fishing season off to a good start with a Go Get Outdoors Steelhead Fishing Clinic taking place on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1 at Mitchell State Park in Wexford County.
Anglers will meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday at the park’s Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center to learn the basics. The group will assemble again at 6 a.m. Sunday at the Tippy Dam to do some fishing.
The clinic is free of charge and open to 25 participants. Those attending should bring waders, a net, rod and reel, tackle, rain gear and proper clothing. There will be time to stop at one of several bait and tackle shops to gear up after class. Pre-registration is required. For details or to register, call Edward Shaw, 231-779-1321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mitchell State Park is located at 6087 E. M-155 in Cadillac. A Recreation Passport is required for entry into the state park.
The Recreation Passport has replaced motor vehicle permits for entry into Michigan state parks, recreation areas and state-administered boating access fee sites. This new way to fund Michigan’s outdoor recreation opportunities also helps to preserve state forest campgrounds, trails, and historic and cultural sites in state parks, and provides park development grants to local communities.
