Fixing date: Bruce's Bar for lunch! Wednesday, Dec. 2

This a highlight of the Loveland Fishing Club social season, and for some reason even spouses relishes the trip to Severance

Drive on your own or (better) carpool fromr Orchard Shopping Center Southwest of King Sooper at 11:30 a.m.. Lunch at noon.  We'll be invading with a crowd of anglers and spouses, so let Norm Engelbrecht know you're coming so we can give them advance warning.  Specialty is all you can eat Rocky Mountain oysters, but they also have good burgers and fish and such for the more finicky among us.

To get there, take Harmony Road in Fort Collins east a few miles (becomes County Road 38E) to Severance.  Pretty hard to miss it from there.

Intro to ice fishing set for Dec. 3 in Denver

DENVER – As the snows start to blow, Colorado anglers know the opportunities for ice fishing are right around the corner. Come join Colorado Parks and Wildlife to learn the basics of this growing sport in Denver on Thursday, Dec. 3, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Tony Dymek, assistant hunting & fishing outreach coordinator for the northeast region, will bring his 25 years of ice fishing experience to share with participants.

"Colorado anglers fishing licenses are good for an entire year, so why not get the most bang for your buck," said Dymek. "Nature gives ice to those of us without boats and often Colorado winter days are beautiful and mild. Don’t be afraid to try a new adventure with your family and friends this winter. "
