The First Annual Montana Women’s Ice Fishing Clinic

YOU are invited to the first annual Montana Women’s Ice Fishing Clinic on Lake Mary Ronan, organized by the Montana Wildlife Federation and Artemis Sportswomen.

Our community is an inclusive one. We welcome all womxn and gender non-conforming folks to this event.

This one-day event is meant to nurture new and experienced ice anglers alike, build community and help women feel confident on the ice. Meeting new women from all walks of life, different experience levels, and different expectations is what makes this opportunity so incredibly unique.

Though experienced anglers will be present to help with set-up and to give fishing tips, the Women’s Ice Fishing Clinic is not a guided outing. It is not guaranteed success. It is, however, guaranteed fun!
