The Neal Taylor Nature Center, located within the Cachuma Lake Recreational Area, will offer a dry-land fishing workshop from 8:45 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 10.

Led by local expert fishermen, the morning event will focus on teaching parents and kids 8 to 15 years old the fundamentals of fishing, said a Nature Center spokeswoman. 

Beginning at 8:45 a.m., participants will be divided into small groups to circulate through presentations on knot-tying, casting, trout fishing, rigging for bass, crappie and blue gill, and salt-water fishing.

All equipment will be provided, but students can also bring their own.

Parents are welcome to observe if they do not want to participate, the spokeswoman said. The program is not suitable for children under 7 years of age.

The program is free of cost but limited to the first 40 kids, parents and adults to sign up, so preregistration is recommended.

For information and to sign up, call 805-693-8381 or e-mail Julie@clnaturecenter.org.

Nature Center admission is free, but County Parks charges a $10 park admission fee per vehicle.
