Fishing workshop Feb. 23

Learn to fish for some of the most challenging freshwater sport fish in the world at a workshop Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Steelhead and Spring Chinook 101, led by expert fisherman Greg Short, will cover topics ranging from rules and regulations, rods, reels, line, tackle and bait. Short will offer technical guidance to help improve skills for both beginners and experts.

Morning discussion will be held at the OSU Extension Office meeting room, followed by a hands-on practice on the lower Hood River.

The workshop is open to all ages (adult supervision required for kids under 12). An Oregon fishing license will be required for anyone age 14 or older. Harvest tags are required to keep steelhead and salmon.
