Women's Workshop

This year, nearly 50 women have joined the ranks of experienced anglers in Louisiana by participating in the LDWF Women’s Fish Tagging Workshops.

Ladies learn how to rig their own rod and reel, fishing tactics, how to properly tag fish, methods of cleaning fish and identification of fish native to Louisiana.

The program is open to women 18 and older who have an interest in fishing and conservation but have not had the opportunity to learn the skills and techniques needed to begin fishing. A trip to Grand Isle Research facility is offered, allowing participants to practice the techniques they learned in order to acquire experience and confidence to continue the sport and pass on to others.
