Ice Fishing 101 hosted by Knee Deep Club
This is the first in a series of programs at Hopatcong State Park, organized by the Lake Hopatcong Foundation, in cooperation with NJ DEP Division of Parks and Forestry.
This free 90 minute program will cover ice fishing basics and safety, learn tips, tricks and tactics and what tackle and equipment is needed. Participants will meet at the Hopatcong State Park beach area near the boat launch before walking out onto the ice-covered lake.
Ice fishing equipment will be provided by Knee Deep Club members for use during this catch and release program. Participants should dress accordingly for the weather, wear appropriate footwear and if possible bring ice safety picks.
To register for the Ice Fishing 101 program, send your name, phone number and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the LHF office at 973-663-3500 by Thursday, February 1.
* Due to inclement weather or poor ice conditions, the program will be rescheduled to Sunday, February 11. If postponement becomes necessary, the LHF will contact registrants directly.
