Bring the kids (16 and under) for a Free Fishing Clinic at Lopez Lake. The Clinic is held at the Nature Center near the Marina and space is limited, so please sign up early. Kids will be given lessons with an experienced fisherman on fishing ethics and conservation, knot tying, fish types and ecology, as well as how to cast their line. All equipment is provided, thanks to the donations from the Friends of Lopez Lake. Everyone gets a chance to fish! Following the fishing clinic, Stewardship Travelers will then participate in a Ranger-led aquatic ecology hike and helpful shore line clean-up to protect the wildlife habitat.
The event is held on the third Saturday of March each year. It is cancelled by rain. The Clinic is free, however cost to enter Lopez Lake Recreation Area is $10 per vehicle.
