Join Ranger Brandon and Ranger Zach at Lake Julian Park on Saturday, May 14 and you will learn how to build your own handline fishing rig and then test it out on the fish of Lake Julian.

Handline fishing dates back to the earliest methods for catching fish on a line. You will leave with your very own pocket-sized handline fishing rig that can be used to catch almost any fish. Handlining take the concept of ‘light tackle’ to the extreme and gives you a level of feel and connection to a fish unmatched by a rod and reel.
