Free Ice Fishing Clinic
Free ice fishing clinic for people of all ages!
DEC will supply most of the bait and tackle, but experienced anglers are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear. After a short lesson on the basics of ice fishing and filleting your catch, DEC and Parks staff will be on hand throughout the day to assist participants on the ice. Anglers can expect to catch yellow perch and chain pickerel. Sunfish, black crappie, rock bass, black bass, walleye and lake trout are also present in Otsego Lake.
Clinic will be lead by Tom Hughes, NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation in partnership with the DEC. For more information contact the Glimmerglass State Park office at 607-547-8662.
This clinic will be held on the ice near the beach, so dress warmly. The Lakeview Room will be open to take a break, warm up, and see the demonstrations!
