Whether you’re a novice or experienced there’s always more to learn about ice fishing. Anglers are invited to join Colorado Parks and Wildlife for an ice-fishing clinic, Jan. 11 at Crawford State Park.
The clinic will start at 10 a.m. at the park visitors’ center and then move to the ice at noon. The clinic will end about 2 p.m. Local experts will display different types of ice-fishing equipment, explain how it is used and provide demonstrations. Clinic leaders will also talk specifically about strategies for fishing Crawford Reservoir, especially where and how to catch crappie and northern pike.
“Conditions for ice fishing this season are ideal at Crawford,” said Scott Rist, head ranger at Crawford State Park. “This is a great activity that’s inexpensive and suitable for all ages. And you’ll catch some great-tasting fish.”
Anglers who have their own equipment should bring it. Those who plan to fish must have a Colorado fishing license. Licenses can be purchased at the park.
Crawford State Park is located just south of the town of Crawford on Colo. Highway 92, in southeast Delta County.
