MASON CITY – An Ice Fishing Event sponsored by the Cerro Gordo County Conservation Board and Lime Creek Nature Center will be held on Saturday, January 12, from 9 – 11:30 a.m. at Bluebill Wildlife Area.

A fun morning of fishing for all is the main goal of this program.  There will be a fire going for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs.  Following the fishing a weigh-in will be held to recognize the biggest and most fish caught, and a door prize drawing will be held for both children and adults.

Mentors will be present to assist novices with ice fishing techniques.  A limited supply of equipment will be available for use, or participants can purchase an ice fishing pole and jig for $8.00.

Participants should bring ice fishing equipment, a bucket to put fish in, and dress for the weather.  Children must be accompanied by an adult and anyone 16 years of age or older must have a fishing license.  Registration is required – please call 423-5309 to register or for more information.

Bluebill Wildlife Area is located seven miles west of Mason City on Blacktop B-35, and two miles south on South 40th Street (14369 Indigo Ave.).
