LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — New and experienced ice anglers can hone their skills in January at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will host a "Discover Ice Fishing" event on Jan. 11 at the parks' CenturyLink Pond from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Families and anglers will receive guidance on techniques, equipment, bait and safety. Hot cocoa will be served.
A park entry permit is required for the free event, and all fishing regulations apply. Loaner equipment will be available but limited, so participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment.
Participants must register by Jan. 9. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Larry Pape at 402-471-5447.
