GLASGOW, Mont. (NMB) – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program is sponsoring an ice fishing class near Fort Peck, on January 4th and 5th.

A press release says that the event will begin with an evening classroom portion on Friday, January 4th from 6 to 8 PM at the Fort Peck Interpretive Center. Anglers will learn about ice fishing gear, tactics, dressing to stay warm, how to be safe on the ice, and more.
