(HARDY LAKE) - Learn to bowfish during a hands-on workshop at Hardy Lake on Saturday, June 18.

The free event is a joint effort between the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife fisheries staff, the Hoosier Bowfishing Association and the Bass Unlimited Foundation. Hardy Lake is in Scott County in southern Indiana.

The workshop will promote the growing sport of bowfishing while raising awareness about aquatic invasive species. Bowfishing can help the environment because bow anglers often target invasive and nuisance species such as grass carp and common carp. These species can damage native and sport fish habitats.

The event starts at 7 p.m. local time at the Hardy Lake office. Participants will learn tips and techniques before heading out on the water for a one-on-one experience with a professional bowfishing guide in a boat.

The workshop will end around midnight.

All equipment will be provided.

Advance registration is required and is limited to 30 participants. Register by contacting fisheries biologist Rebecca Pawlak at (812) 789-2724 or rpawlak@dnr.IN.gov. The deadline for registration is June 1.
