4-H Youth attend "Get Hooked on 4-H" - Fishing Event

Fishing of Dora Lake Bridge

The four youth leaders and adult volunteers of the Northome Northern Lights celebrated the new 4-H Club Year by hosting a special fishing event for the 4-H members of Koochiching County 4-H.

14 youth attendees from the Northome area spent sometime learning 

  • Identifying MN Fish 
  • Fish Sensory
  • Fishing Safety 
  • Bait & Tackle 
  • Casting

Then they got to try out their new skills with some fishing of the Dora Lake Bridge. Several of the youth were successful. In total five nice sized Yellow Perch and four Northern Pike were caught within an hour.

Photo Album of the day is available on our Koochiching County 4-H Facebook Page.

This event has was a continuation of the Hooked on Fishing – Train the Trainer Program event that the four youth leaders and an adult volunteer attended the at Bear Head Lake State Park outside of Ely on Saturday, June 10. 

Another fishing event is being planned for the end of February.
