FINDLAY – The public is invited to attend a free workshop on the basics of frog gigging on Aug. 7 according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
The workshop will begin at 7 p.m. at the Barney Quilter CCC Camp, located at 1518 East County Road 113, Green Springs 44836. Participants should plan to stay well after dark to participate in the field portion of the workshop.
Topics to be covered by ODNR Division of Wildlife officials include equipment, techniques, regulations and a cleaning demonstration. At dusk, groups will search the ponds on camp property with ODNR Division of Wildlife staff in pursuit of frogs. Participants are encouraged to wear old clothes and shoes, and bring waders, hips boots, or a canoe or kayak to better access frogs in the ponds. A headlamp or flashlight is also recommended.
Interested parties are reminded that anyone 16 years of age or older is required to have a valid fishing license to participate. Preregistration is required by Aug. 6, as space is limited. Please contact Andrea Altman at 419-429-8321 for more information and to register.
