WAUSAU (WAOW)--It's opening day for Fishing in Wisconsin. Students and teachers from across the state started the season in Rib Mountain. They took part in classes with Adventures and Outdoor Education which offers a variety of activities including fishing. Participants headed out onto the water with instructors in hopes of brushing up on technique and catching fish.

"We were just going over how to put lines on rods, different ways to tie on baits, ways to put the baits on, where to look in the rivers to find the fish, whether it's walleyes or bass and then ways to fish them," says instructor Chris Nelson.

Participants say it's a great way to earn school credit while enjoying the outdoors. This is the 30th annual Adventures and Outdoor Education Workshop. It always takes place on opening weekend for fishing.
