Mentor the next generation of anglers in Saginaw Bay.

Join us for a three day series of evening workshops and become a fully certified Project F.I.S.H volunteer. Project F.I.S.H. is an award winning youth fishing education and mentorship program working across Michigan to preserve fishing as part of our state’s natural heritage and foster the next generation of anglers to enjoy and care for our rich fishing resources.

Workshop participants will:

  • Learn hands-on youth-focused methods for teaching a variety of topics including tackle crafting, angling skills, aquatic ecology, and fisheries management and ethics.
  • Connect with youth fishing education partners and volunteer opportunities in the Saginaw Bay region.
  • Receive a toolbox of fishing education materials that includes a spincast rod and reel, backyard bass game, tackle box, tackle crafting supplies, bluegill fish print mold, a stewardship project guide and the full Project F.I.S.H. curriculum with detailed instructions for over 100 fishing education activities.

This training is completely FREE for residents of Bay and Saginaw counties thanks to a generous grant from the Saginaw Community Foundation through the Dow Corning Donor Advised Funds. Residents from outside of Bay and Saginaw counties are also welcome to participate and should contact Katy Hintzen at (989) 891-7198 or hintzen@msu.edu for more information.
