SALT LAKE CITY — Do you want to take your fishing game to the next level this year? You can learn how and where to catch walleye during an upcoming seminar hosted by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
The free event will be held at the Utah Department of Natural Resources building at 1594 W. North Temple in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, April 10 from 7-8:30 p.m. Attendees will be able to learn about the following:
DWR’s walleye program
How to locate walleye in a body of water
How to catch walleye
Where to fish for walleye in Utah
Rocky Mountain Anglers member Lee Rasmussen said walleye are quite difficult to catch because they aren’t in every Utah waterbody and because they can be difficult to locate. He said it is in the best interest of anyone who wants to learn to catch walleye to attend this seminar and learn from the experts.
“The people teaching at this seminar are the premier walleye anglers in the state of Utah,” Rasmussen said. “You have to be an actual angler to find walleye and entice them to bite. Fishing for walleye is not like fishing for trout.”
Although this event is free, space is limited and registration is required.
Rocky Mountain Anglers, Utah’s Blue Ribbon Fisheries Advisory Council and the DWR are sponsoring the event. For more information, contact Rasmussen at 801-580-5779 or at lras3 [AT] hotmail [DOT] com.
