Catch the facts about ice fishing

Have you ever wanted to try fishing on the ice? Learn how ice fishing can be fun and safe for the whole family during this program from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 20, at PPL’s Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center.

Andy Fedor, regional education specialist with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, will provide information on Pennsylvania fishes, basic ice fishing skills, regulations and ice safety. Weather permitting, participants will also get the opportunity to put their new fishing skills to use out on Lake Wallenpaupack.

The program is free and fishing licenses are not required. All equipment and bait will be provided. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Part of this program will be conducted inside, but parents need to ensure that they and their children are dressed appropriately for the outdoor portion of the program.

Registration is required. To register, contact PPL at 570-253-7076 or pplpreserves@pplweb.com. For directions to this event, click here.
