Youth Fishing Instructor Certification, Spring 2023

February 27, 2023 daryl bauer

News item for the blog today.  I want to spread the word on this:

Game and Parks will certify youth fishing instructors across state

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will certify youth fishing instructors at workshops in five locations across the state in the coming months.

Instructors are part of the Youth Fishing Program, a statewide team of volunteers and Game and Parks staff who host educational fishing events.

Trainings will take place at:

-The Mark, Elkhorn, March 19, 2-5 p.m.;

-Schramm Education Center, Gretna, March 26, 2-5 p.m.;

-Ponca State Park, April 23, 9 a.m.-noon;

-Fort Kearny State Historical Park, May 10, 6-9 p.m.; and

-Nebraska Outdoor Education Center, Lincoln, May 21, 2-5 p.m.

Workshop participants will receive training and tools to conduct youth fishing clinics. These volunteers will have access to Game and Parks’ loaner fishing equipment and educational materials for events. They also will receive program incentives. Instructors are encouraged to volunteer for such Game and Parks programs as Community Fishing Nights and the Outdoor Expos.

Registration is required and may be completed at

Contact Larry Pape at for information.

Now a couple of comments:  I will always tell you our youth fishing instructors are a huge asset and a lot of help.  There are a number of programs you can get involved in and help with by becoming one of our youth fishing instructors.  If you love to fish, this is a great way to give back to the sport and our resources.  Please do it!

And, again, to those of you who are already certified, THANK YOU!
