Discover Nature – Free Fishing Classes

August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites kids and their families to a free, four-class series of fishing workshops in Columbia.  The Discover Nature – Fishing (DNF) workshops will cover the basics of fishing from tackle to knot-tying, and participants will gain the skills and confidence to go fishing on their own.

Each of the four lessons will focus on a different topic:

  • Lesson 1 – Equipment, casting, and proper fish handling
    * Participants must attend Lesson 1 in order to attend any of the following lessons
  • Lesson 2 – How to tie a knot and bait a hook
  • Lesson 3 – Five common Missouri fish: anatomy, habitat, and lifecycle
  • Lesson 4 – Fishing with lures and fishing regulations

These DNF classes will take place from 6 – 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, Aug. 13 – 22, at Bass Pro Lake, 3101 Bass Pro Drive.

All DNF classes are free for registered participants and MDC will provide all needed fishing equipment and supplies.  Participants should bring their own bug repellant and sunscreen if they wish.

For more information about these classes, contact Edwards at [email protected], or (573) 815-7901, ext. 2968.
