The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting a Women’s Saltwater Fishing Clinic in Crystal River on October 7th.

The free, day-long clinics are from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Fort Island Trail Park in Crystal River.

Advance registration is required. To register or get more information, please email Heather Sneed at, or call 850-487-0554.

The Women’s Saltwater Fishing Clinic is for women 18 years of age or older with no prior saltwater fishing needed.

Participants will take home a lifelong hobby and leave with a new appreciation for the marine environment. They will learn the basics of conservation stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills, safety and the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.

Lessons include knot tying, rod and reel rigging, how to be a responsible marine resource steward, marine fish and habitat identification, catch-and-release techniques and more.

If conditions allow, participants will have the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills by fishing from shore or a pier. This event is a catch-and-release activity. All participants must have a valid recreational saltwater fishing license unless exempt. Saltwater fishing licenses can be purchased at your local tackle shop or online. Learn more by visiting

Fishing equipment and bait are provided during the clinic but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
