Craig and Meeker Youth Cast & Blast Clinics
The Colorado Division of Wildlife Hunter Outreach program is sponsoring two very special Youth Cast & Blast Clinics in northwest Colorado. The first clinic will be in Meeker on Saturday, Aug. 9 and the second clinic will be held in Craig on Sunday, Aug. 10. Youth Cast & Blast clinics are designed for young people (10 to 17) who want to learn to fly fish and to shoot a shotgun.
Space is limited to the first 32 young people for each event who pay the $10 registration fee, which covers the cost of beverages and lunch. The Northwest Colorado Outfitters Association has graciously volunteered to prepare the food for participants at each event.
Participants at the Meeker Cast & Blast need to have transportation to and from the Oak Ridge State Wildlife Area for the event, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For Craig participants, transportation will be provided from Moffat County High School for the all day event. Craig participants will leave the high school at 7:45 a.m. and will return at approximately 5:30 p.m.
Participants spend the day with Division of Wildlife staff while learning and practicing shooting and fishing techniques. No prior experience or equipment required as shotguns and fishing equipment are provided. Participants over the age of 16 will need a fishing license to participate, but completion of hunter education is not required for this class.
