Seven year old Eliza Bingham is fitted for a new helmet by her father Dr. Isaac Bingham as part of "Save Your Brain, Wear A Helmet" campaign at Snowbird, Utah, Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2011. Eliza was hit by a fast moving skier breaking her femur and pelvis in December. She was wearing a helmet which was damaged in the collision also. Snowbird Ski Resort, the Trauma Program at Intermountain Medical Center, and Intermountain Life Flight are teaming up to increase the number of skiers and snowboarders who wear helmets while on Utah's slopes.

On March 29, Rocky Mountain Anglers and the Division of Wildlife Resources will present the 19th annual Utah Walleye Seminar.

The seminar is for everyone, including those who have never fished for walleye before all the way to experienced anglers.

The free seminar will be held March 29, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the Department of Natural Resources auditorium. The auditorium is at 1594 W. North Temple in Salt Lake City.

"All of the panel members have extensive experience fishing for walleye in Utah and surrounding states," says Ray Schelble with Rocky Mountain Anglers.

Schelble says you'll learn about the best times of year to fish for walleye and the best waters in Utah to catch them at. "You'll also receive information about hot lures and techniques," he says, "including how to troll and how to use spinner rigs, jigs, crankbaits and baits effectively."
