Oklahoma City offers fly fishing class Sept. 14
Students will learn about types of fly rods and lines, what flies or popping bugs to use, get hands-on experience in knot tying and casting fly rods, and learn about local fly fishing opportunities. Volunteer instructors from the 89er Chapter of Trout Unlimited in Oklahoma City will lead the class.
“Fly fishing is a fun experience, and this class will help anglers get started,” said City Fisheries Biologist Bob Martin.
All equipment is provided with a cost of $20 per student. The class is limited to 20 students.
For required advance registration, okc.gov/parksignup and search Event ID 20400.
The fly fishing class is offered as part of the Parks and Recreation Department’s fisheries management program, operated from the fish hatchery.
The H.B. Parsons Fish Hatchery is the only municipal fish hatchery in Oklahoma. Through its partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation in the fisheries management work and their “Close to Home” fishing program, the staff at the hatchery raises more than 500,000 walleye, striped bass hybrids, channel catfish and hybrid sunfish for stocking each year into Oklahoma City fishing waters. The staff manages about 8,000 surface acres of fishable water.
