ODFW is looking for anglers to share their love of fishing with families and children by becoming volunteer fishing instructors.

The agency will be hosting angler instructor training in Bend on Saturday, Jan. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Office, 61374 Parrell Road, Bend, OR 97702. Lunch will be provided.

According to Shahab Farzanegan, ODFW angling education coordinator, the day will in include basic fishing skills, stewardship, aquatic resources and water safety.

“Potential volunteers will also learn about upcoming events in their area and how they can get involved,” Farzanegan said. “The great thing about completing training this time of year is that new instructors will be ready to participate in upcoming fishing events this spring.”
