2017 Ice Fishing Clinic

Our annual Family Ice Fishing Clinic was held at the Waterworks Ponds on Presque Isle State Park on Saturday Feb. 18th from 10-2. This annual event is a partnership with PA DCNR. The weather was goodith temps in the 40's with light wind. The ice on the pond was only about one inch thick and unsafe, therefore we drilled holes next to and around the floating fishing platform in the pond so people could fish through the ice.   Thirty four S.O.N.S. volunteers and two Park Naturalists gave hands on instruction in ice fishing techniques to nearly 200 registered participants.  

The fishing was very slow. Only two small blur gills were caught but that did not prevent all of the participants from having fun and enjoying a beautiful day.

On Sunday February 12th the annual Winterfest was held by the L.E.A.F. Association at Frontier Park. The day was damp, cold and dreary but yet hundreds of hardy people came onto the festival to enjoy the activities of the day. There were numerous kidís activities, ice carving demo, carriage rides and an ice fishing simulator by S.O.N.S. volunteers. Below are some photos of our volunteers who spent four hours in the cold and rain.
