Free Youth Fishing Clinic

Free Youth Fishing Clinic

Junior anglers are invited to a free summer fishing clinic at Niobrara State Park on Sunday, September 25th, from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm.

          The clinic is hosted by the Niobrara National Scenic River, the Missouri National Recreational River, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and the Friends of the Niobrara.

“We are excited to engage local youth in our public lands in ways caregivers have for generations,” stated Niobrara National Scenic River Superintendent Susan Cook. “We are also hopeful to expand this program in the future.”

          Registration is required in advance and anglers under 12 years of age will receive their very own fishing pole to take home, courtesy of the National Park Foundation!

          Youths 15 years old and younger do not need a fishing permit, all others are required to have a permit.

          The clinic is free, but the State of Nebraska requires vehicle park entry permits for motorized vehicles entering the park.

For more information, and to register for the event, please contact the Missouri National Recreational River at (605) 665-0209 extension 23 or email thomas_downs@nps.gov.
