Fishing Clinics

Our family fishing clinics see more than 20,000 Coloradoans each year. Colorado Parks and Wildlife hosts, sponsors or contributes to fishing clinics that provide opportunities for kids and their families to learn to fish and manage our aquatic resources.

Many community groups, civic organizations and local government agencies offer "'learn to fish" opportunities.

Find contact information for your local recreation centers, community centers and parks departments. Other possibilities include fishing groups, such as Trout Unlimited, Colorado BASS Federation, Colorado Walleye Association and Muskies, Inc., or local sporting goods stores--many hold learn-to-fish clinics and are great sources for fishing club information.

Free Fishing Clinic at Boyd Lake State Park
Saturday, June 29

All ages welcome to Boyd's Fishing Clinic! Join Boyd Lake Naturalist Brady for an initial educational session (intended for kids/beginners) that will last for 30 minutes at the beginning of the clinic. The second session, right after the first session (intended for adults/ intermediate fishers) will take place while the kids are getting set up for some real fishing! We have "loaner" fishing poles and basic tackle for those who don't have any gear. Please RSVP for a spot so we can make sure we have enough tackle and gear. Anyone over 16 years old must have a fishing license. The Boyd Lake Park Office sells fishing/hunting licenses (one-day or annual fishing licenses available).
