Let's go fishing!
Since school is out Jan. 15, West Linn Parks and Recreation says let's go fishing!
Participants will travel to a local, stocked lake to catch fish all day with Coyle Outside. They will learn the fundamentals of fishing and hopefully come home with fish to eat for dinner. Bring a pole, or use provided equipment. Lunch, snack, waterproof shoes and raingear required for this adventure. Coyle Outside provides classes to encourage students to practice skills and think critically in the outdoors. All classes meet at Mary S. Young Park under the picnic shelter. For questions contact Coyle Outside by calling 541-760-0774. Classes are being held on Jan. 15 and March 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., cost is $70.
