This free seminar is for both new and seasoned anglers alike interested in learning about our North Shore steelhead salmon and trout fishery, and an opportunity to indulge in some award-winning beer and fresh Brick oven Pizza from our food truck vendor. We hope each of you will walk away with more understanding of this complex fishery, gain new tips and ideas to pursue fish in the coming seasons, and make connections with like-minded anglers. The Seminar is presented by our friend and renowned North Shore guide and author, Carl Haensel. 
There will be time before & after the presentation for one-on-one questions with Carl, MN Steelheader Staff, and some of our partner organization leaders.  Social time, questions, and relaxed beer drinking will go on until 9pm.

We will graciously be taking donations during the event.  100% of your donations go back to supporting future events and streamside clinics.

*Cash bar and food truck
