GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCBD) – The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will host a Saltwater Family Fishing Clinic in Georgetown on April 28.

The introductory clinic will teach reeling and casting techniques along with how to rig a rod and tie fishing knots. Supplies will be provided.

All ages are welcome at the clinic, which will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. However, participants 16 or older who are planning to fish during the clinic are required to have a valid South Carolina saltwater fishing license.
