Series continues with whiskered fish
KINGMAN - For those feeling stressed out or overworked, or those looking to spend time alone or with their children, fishing might just be the answer.
Andy Clark, fisheries program manager with the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Region III office in Kingman, will present "Fishing Arizona: Catfish" as part of the Summer Wildlife Series Thursday at the Powerhouse Visitor's Center across from Locomotive Park.
"There is some excellent fishing throughout the tri-city area," Clark said.
"We're fortunate to have such great angling opportunities around here."
Clark's one-hour presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the visitor center event room located around the back of the building.
While the presentation is free and open to people of all ages, this effort will appeal more to catfish anglers with some experience.
Clark said the presentation will provide information on the different types of catfish, biology, feeding habits, habitat, the best places to fish, types of bait, as well as information on the regulations and management of the species.
"The Colorado River system provides some of if not the best catfishing opportunities in the state," Clark said.
"While anglers with some experience will probably get more out of this presentation, anyone interested in attending will definitely pick up some good tips on where to go and the types of bait that will increase your odds of a successful day or night on the water."
The Summer Wildlife Series, which began in May, will conclude on Aug. 20 with a presentation on desert bighorn sheep.
The Powerhouse Visitor's Center is located at 120 W. Andy Devine Ave. For more information, call Zen Mocarski at (928) 692-7700, ext. 2301.
