Free fishing clinic open to all ages! This is a great opportunity to introduce new anglers to fishing. Sessions will include fish identification with live fish, casting practice, fish art, and more. All registered youth will be eligible for door prizes.

Sign-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. and clinic sessions will run from 9:00-11:00. Door prize drawings for youth and lunch for the whole family will follow the clinic. Fishing poles and assistance from Winneshiek County Conservation staff will be available for family fishing from approximately 12:00-1:00.

Registration is now closed. Walk-ins will be accepted, but are not guaranteed either lunch or prizes.

Youth under 7 must be accompanied by an adult throughout the clinic.

The clinic is being held in memory and honor of Stan Shevik, formerly of Spillville, and his lifelong passion for fishing and love of Lake Meyer.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will also be assisting with the clinic.

June 7-9 is Iowa Free Fishing Weekend, when no fishing license is required for Iowa residents.
