“Great day with the kids. Thanks for teaching us all, our fisherman was so helpful! Looking forward to taking the kids out again with the rods they received.” – Parent, Fishing Kids event



This is a Fishing Kids event designed to provide all children, ages 5-14, the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Each event varies due to the location and other variables. At this location, 300 children will have the opportunity to receive a Fishing Kids t-shirt and rod & reel to keep! The kids will fish in groups on-shore for up to 45 minutes receiving instruction by experienced anglers on angling techniques and environmental stewardship.  The parents are encouraged to participate with their children and prior to each fishing session each group receives a tutorial on water safety.
