Learn to fish from a kayak at Paynetown SRA, June 14

In partnership with the IDNR Division of Fish and Wildlife, Monroe Lake is offering a two-hour kayak fishing workshop at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Thursday, June 14 at 6 p.m.

The free workshop is limited to 15 people, ages 18 and up. Registration is required by June 11 at http://bit.ly/kayakfishjun2018. Participants can bring their own kayak or rent one for $10.

No prior fishing experience is required; brand-new anglers are welcome. However, you do need to have at least two hours of prior kayaking experience or have completed an intro to kayaking workshop within the past year.

The workshop will begin with shoreline fishing, to ensure that all participants are comfortable with fishing basics. Participants will then climb into kayaks and work on translating those shoreline skills into on-the-water skills.

Instructors will provide personal assistance to all participants, so that everyone will leave the workshop ready to go kayak fishing again on their own.

Participants need to bring a valid Indiana fishing license with them to the workshop. Licenses can be purchased online at http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/9339.htm; the price for Indiana residents is $9 for a one-day license or $17 for an annual license.

Questions about the workshop should be directed to the Paynetown Activity Center at 812-837-9967 or [email protected]
