Fishing with Fremont

Published December 13th, 2018 in Education-AmeriCorps

After learning rules, regulations, fish anatomy, fish identification, and knot tying with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Fremont Middle School students were ready to try their hand at fishing! We traveled to Cooper Creek where students worked together to practice baiting hooks and casting lines. We didn’t get any bites, but everyone had a great afternoon exploring fishing and outdoor recreation. Thanks to ODFW for allowing us to come along, and thank you to the local fishermen who volunteered their time for the field trip and class time.
