The Orem Recreation Department has teamed up with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to offer a community youth fishing program. This program is open to all youth ages 7–13 years old. This program will educate youth on casting, knot tying, proper use of fishing equipment, fish biology and diversity, aquatic ecology, water cycle and quality, fisheries management and ethics, fishing opportunities in Utah, and most important FUN!
Classes will be held on Thursdays from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, for six weeks. Each class is two hours long, with the first half hour instructing kids on the above mentioned topics and the last one and a half hour fishing. Classes will take place at Vivian Park in Provo Canyon. The kids will be fishing for Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout. An adult instructor will be supervising and working with the participants in groups of five. This is sure to be a great chance to experience Utah’s fabulous outdoors! For more information about youth fishing, contact Michael Thompson at 801-229-7158.
