Course Description:

Fishing Adventures (Grades K-5)

Burroughs Physical Education Teacher, Mr. Hill has created an after school Fishing Adventure class that are perfect for the child that needs more movement in their lives. The classes include fishing adventures at Lake Harriet and along Minnehaha Creek (no fishing experience necessary). While at our favorite fishing holes, students will learn about: trail, water and fishing safety, proper identification and use of fishing equipment, baiting hooks (not required), removing fish from hooks (not required), casting techniques, presentation of bait and fish identification. We will practice catch and release techniques and use barbless hooks. Students will fish from fishing docks, shoreline and by wading out into the water (up to their knees). All fishing equipment will be provided; students may bring their own fishing poles if they are in good working condition and they are set-up for panfish and ready to go (small bobbers and no big hooks please). Character building, cooperative skills, individual success, trail and fishing etiquette and trail and fishing safety are all emphasized. Math, reading, health, nutrition and wellness are incorporated into the lessons. Due to COVID restrictions parents are responsible to drop off and pick up their student and gear at Lynnhurst Park between ball fields 2 and 3.  Dress for the weather: jacket, gloves or mittens, hat, shorts, t-shirts, gym shoes, sweat pants/sweat shirts. Please bring a snack to eat before each session and a water bottle.
