Winter Carnival Ice Fishing Derby
Join us for our first-ever educational Ice Fishing Derby. Participants may participate as experienced anglers or can participate as learners by taking one of our ice fishing lessons hosted by the University of Wisconsin Fishing team and our local DNR Wardens. Sign up separately to take lessons—they will be run every hour on the hour! Participants in the lessons will provide all the necessary fishing equipment needed to fish.
This event will be free of charge, all you need to do is come with a current fishing license ($5.00 first-time angler licenses available at DNR.Wisconsin.gov). Anglers who catch fish worthy of our awards will be given a coupon for a free rental with Outdoor UW. Participants must be students.
The event will take place outside, so participants should dress to be warm for the duration. The ice cover can be quite wet so make sure to bring waterproof boots!
Hour-long ice fishing lessons are sold out.
