Presented by the DNR’s Carl T. Johnson Hunt and Fish Center pro-staff, the class will cover various strategies and techniques for chasing Michigan’s “chrome torpedoes.” Participants are encouraged to bring their own gear, if possible, or – if new to steelheading – some equipment will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The classroom portion of the clinic will take place at the recreation area headquarters. In the afternoon the class will hit the water, where instructors will show attendees how to fish and what to look for.
The cost for the clinic is $25. All proceeds are reinvested into future programs at the Carl T. Johnson Hunt and Fish Center.
