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 older. Registration is required by June 11 at bit.ly/kayakfishjun2018.
Participants can bring their own kayak or rent one for $10.
The workshop is a partnership with the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. No fishing experience is required and new anglers are welcome. However, you must have at least two hours of kayaking experience or have completed an introduction 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.
Participants must bring a valid Indiana fishing license. Licenses can be purchased online at wildlife.IN.gov/9339.htm.
For more information, call 812-837-9967 or email jvance@dnr.IN.gov.
