Learn the basics of ice fishing or pick up a few new tips from experienced anglers at three Discover Ice-Fishing clinics in January. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Youth Fishing Program will host two on-ice and one classroom events.

On Saturday, January 15, the Nebraska Fish and Game Association will host a Classroom Clinic at Yanney Heritage Park’s Environmental Resource Center in Kearney from 1-5 p.m. This clinic will feature presentations by some of Nebraska’s top ice fishermen. Seating is limited, so registration is requested by emailing

Sunday, January 16 we will host an On-ice event at Kearney’s Fort Kearny State Recreation Area (SRA) Lake No. 6 from 8 a.m.- noon.

On Saturday, January 29, NGPC will hose an On-ice event: Discover Ice Fishing at Lincoln’s Holmes Lake from 1-4 p.m. Look for us in the parking lot about mid-lake along the north shoreline drive.

Limited loaner equipment will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Bait and instruction will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment.

A park entry permit is required at Fort Kearny. All fishing regulations apply. A lack of safe ice will force the cancellation of the on-ice events.
