The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), CCA Louisiana, Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, National Wildlife Federation and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation are teaming up to present two Women’s Fishing Workshops this spring at Cabela’s Gonzales location. The workshops, held on Saturday, April 22 and Saturday, May 20, are open to women over the age of 18 who are looking to learn about fishing and utilizing Louisiana’s aquatic resources.
Whether you’ve never fished, or you’re a more advanced angler looking to sharpen your knowledge, these workshops cover a variety of skills to help make fishing more enjoyable. LDWF biologists and aquatic volunteer instructors will instruct 30 women per event in fish identification, best fish handling practices, preparing fishing equipment, basic fishing skills, as well as catching, cleaning, storing, and cooking fish. Some participants will also get the chance to apply their newly learned skills on an overnight fishing trip to Grand Isle under the direction of LDWF biologists and volunteer instructors. Participants will stay at the LDWF Fisheries Research lab where they will get a chance to go fishing in the areas surrounding Grand Isle on Saturday and Sunday morning.
