Washington County 4-H and Washington County Conservation Board are working together to reach shared goals that involve youth, hands-on learning, healthy living and outdoor education to bring the first FISH ON Youth Ice Fishing Clinic to Washington County youth. 
This new event scheduled for February 6 will pack the morning with topics to include ice safety, fish species, ice fishing equipment, licensure regulations, fishing technology and fishing careers.   Teaching will be led by Washington County Conservation naturalist and Iowa DNR officers.  Thanks to generous sponsors youth will receive their own ice fishing equipment and then work with local ice fisherman at the Marr Park ponds to catch fish. 
The event is open to any youth 4th grade and older.  4-H members is not required.  Youth younger than 4th grade may participate but must have an adult attend to assist who has a current fishing license.   Limited space available.  Online registrations accepted on a first come, first serve basis until filled or February 1.
