Connecticut Fish and Wildlife wants you to know…

The long-term weather forecast is that 2013 will bring some very cold weather, which is good news for those hardy Ice anglers here in Connecticut.

If you have never experienced this adventurous winter sport, here is your chance.

The Inland Fisheries Division’s CARE program has FREE Ice Fishing classes scheduled all over the state during the month of January.

Check out the CARE webpage, where you can find a listing of upcoming classes and a short video on learning to ice fish: http://www.ct.gov/deep/care

Courses include discussions on where to fish, what bait to use, and safety around water.   Information on ecology and the environment also make it easier for you to find fish in the habitats they prefer.

Some courses are comprehensive and meet several times.  Others are short and may cover specific topics, like ice fishing.

Summer Fishing classes are offered to kids in day camps when school is out.  CARE lessons are even taught in many school classrooms.
