The event is limited to 15 people and the application deadline is June 9.

At the event women will learn the basics of fly fishing, shotgun shooting, archery and wildlife watching. Participants will also pick up tips on camping. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will supply all sporting equipment—shotguns, ammunition, bows and arrows, and fly rods and tackle. Those who have a 20-gauge shotgun, fishing or archery gear can bring their own.

“This program is designed for women and provides a very supportive atmosphere for those who want to learn about fishing, hunting and wildlife,” said Kelly Crane, district wildlife manager in Ouray. “We especially invite women who have little or no experience to join us.”

Participants must have a current Colorado fishing license.

The event will be held at the Jim Olterman/Lone Cone State Wildlife Area, located about 25 miles south of Norwood. Participants should bring their own camping gear; they can camp in their own tent or sleep in a cabin. All food will be provided. Those with dietary restrictions, however, should bring their own supplies.

Those interested in the workshop must apply. For an application, contact Dawn Bresett at 970-252-6000, or Applications must be received by June 9. Participants will be notified by June 13.
