Fishing Clinic - Youth Register View Cart

Join us for a one-day fishing clinic.  Participants will learn about proper safety procedures for using fishing equipment and how to tackle a rod.  Catch plenty of fish by understanding how the different bait, water and weather conditions can affect how fish bite.  Participants must bring their own fishing pole and questions for semi-pro bass fisherman Antonio "GoGo" Gomez.  Bait will be provided.  Instruction by: GoGo Gomez for Kids and Family.  Limit is 25 per clinic. 

Due to COVID-19 guidelines, participants are required to bring enough water bottles to last each class. Feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer.  Participants & staff will be required to wear a face covering to class. Face coverings will be removed for outdoor physical activities while at the program. Unvaccinated individuals should wear a face covering when dropping off and picking up their child (unless health regulations are revised)    

Participants will be required to have a temperature check and health assessment upon arrival at the program before you are allowed to participate. When arriving, unvaccinated participants must wear a face covering until you have been tested and approved.   You can begin arriving 15 minutes before the program is scheduled to begin to allow time for the health assessment and temperature testing. Please be patient as this process will take some time to complete. Pre-registration online is required. 

Health & Safety Requirements:
Drop Off:
The program begins at 5:30 p.m.; however, you can begin arriving at 5:15 p.m. This will allow time for the required temperature check and health assessment that must be conducted before your child is allowed to participate in the program.

Your child will be asked a series of 4 health assessment questions and temperature taken. Any child that fails the pre-admission screening will not be able to participate in the program. Please be patient when dropping off your child as this may take some time and can only be done one at a time. If your child walks or rides a bike to the program and does not pass the pre-assessment requirements, parents will be contacted to come and pick their child up immediately.

Unvaccinated individuals should wear a face-covering as they wait for their child to be tested and approved for admission.
