The Boating Pavilion at Forest Park Beach serves as "smelt central" on this Saturday from sundown until 10 p.m. Learn how to catch, clean and cook these tasty little critters. A limited number of nets are provided by the Recreation Department so that everyone will have a chance to get into the action. Participants are encouraged to wear warm clothes and bring any smelting equipment they have on hand.
