Clint Kowalik earned a B.S. in Biology (2001) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and completed an M.S. program in Fish & Wildlife Ecology (2003). He was an Assistant Fisheries Biologist (2003-2009) for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW).
Since June 2009, he has run the DNR’s sport fishing education program, as well as run train-the-trainer workshops to get youth to go fishing. He has also taught family Learn to Fish workshops, promotes Indiana fishing at sports shows, works with hundreds of volunteers and more. In the past two years, he has focused on coordinating the DFW Angler R3 – Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation Program – efforts and linking them to partner events.
When not getting people to fish or finding a quiet fishing spot for himself, he enjoys spending time with his wife Debbie, daughter Francesca, and friends playing a gamut of games – yard, board, and card.
