A free kids’ fishing clinic will be held Apr. 30 at the Valentine State Fish Hatchery. It will be hosted by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and Valentine Lions Club.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the clinic starts at 10 a.m., rain or shine. Free rod-and-reel combos provided by the Nebraska Walleye Association and donations from other sponsors will be handed out to the first 75 registrants.

In the morning, participants will learn about knot-tying, casting, lures and baits, fish identification, and water and boating safety. Following lunch, the kids will fish one of the hatchery ponds stocked with rainbow trout.
