Volunteers sought for youth fishing program

The Pagosa Springs recreation office is seeking volunteers interested in assisting with this year’s “Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs” program.

The program consists of four-hour sessions and is tentatively scheduled to be held Mondays in June at Lake Forest. The sessions typically cover a variety of basic fishing topics, including species identification, casting, knot tying, fly fishing, and catch and release techniques.

With the assistance of the Promoting Prevention Coalition, Pagosa Springs Parks and Recreation Departments and Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association, up to 25 children ages 8-13 can participate in this educational outdoor experience.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age; mandatory background checks are required. Fishing experience is preferred, but not required.

If interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer for this program, please contact Tom Carosello at 264-4151, Ext. 232.
