Intro to Ice Fishing January 9th
Saturday 7am-10:30am | Squam Lakes Natural Science Center | 23 Science Center Rd, Holderness
For ages 9 and up
Beneath the snow and ice is a wondrous world of peril: oxygen starts to deplete, food is scarce, and water temperature is barely above 37°F. Join us in search of fish that remain active under these conditions. Try to entice fish to the end of your line using lures and jigging techniques that mimic their natural food. Learn about fish adaptations by observing fish colors, fins, and mouthparts. Whether you fish for food, as a social gathering, or to be out in the elements, ice fishing is a great activity to foster your love for nature.
All fishing instruction and equipment provided at no extra cost. Ages 16 and up must have a current fishing license. Adults must accompany children as a registered program participant. Wear insulated snow boots with non-cotton socks. Wear many, many layers of clothing, including non-cotton insulating base layers, a windproof outer layer, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and gloves. Bring an extra pair of gloves, snacks, a thermos with a hot beverage, hand and toe warmers, and a camp chair. Purchase fishing licenses through New Hampshire Fish & Game, which helps conservation efforts in our state.
Advance registration is required. Maximum of 10 participants per session due to Covid-19.
