 Welcome to Tightline Outdoors Ice School!

Ice School 2023 will follow the same structure as 2021 and 2022. The 3-hour classroom session will be done through a video link that you will have access to prior to your day on the ice. This will be followed up with a Q&A zoom call with the other anglers in your classroom to answer specific questions that you may have.

Then on the specific day of your on-ice portion of the school, you will join Nate Zelinsky on the ice for a 4-hour educational fishing experience. All fishing equipment will be provided for the on-ice portion of this school including Vexilar’s, Rods/Reels, Tackle, Augers, Bait, etc. Students will be responsible for valid fishing licenses and appropriate clothing.

On-ice portion for both sessions will be held at Cherry Creek Reservoir.
