Workshops & Events

Not sure what to do with a fishing rod even if you had one? Thought about hunting but getting started seems like an impossible task? Then let us help you. During ODFW's hands-on workshops and family fishing events we will provide the instruction and gear you'll need to actually catch a fish or shoot a pheasant. Other classes will help you navigate the controlled hunt process, or show you what equipment you'll need to hunt or fish.

There are events throughout the state.
Mostly in May and June, sometimes fall.
Times vary, but usually early/mid-morning to early/mid-afternoon.
Free: loaner gear, tackle and bait provided.
Numerous locations throughout the state.
Classes and fields days are offered year-round, but summer is most popular.
Times vary, but usually in the evenings or on weekends.
