Fishing helps kids discover nature and conserve it, too. Help the kids (up to age 15) in your life get hooked on the thrill of fishing. Bring them to a Kids Fishing Days program scheduled at a conservation area or participating location near you.
Kids Fishing Days events are designed to help families and youth groups learn about fish, fish habitat, and fishing techniques. Each program event provides fishing equipment and instruction. All you have to do is bring your kids and plenty of energy!
Check the events calendar below for Kids Fishing Days events scheduled around the state.
Kids Fishing Days Events
Young anglers will have opportunities to experience the fun of catching fish at Bennett Spring State Park’s Kids’ Fishing Day 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on May 6th. Kids ages 15 and under can pick up free trout tags at the park store on May 5th from 5-9 p.m. and all day on May 6th. A section of Zone 2 and Zone 3 at the park will be reserved for youth anglers. Volunteers will be on hand to help. Kids are encouraged to bring their own fishing equipment. Parents are welcome to help kids, but adults are also asked to let children fish by themselves as much as possible. Only one pole may be used between the helper and the child. Adults are not allowed to fish in the designated kids’ fishing zone.Volunteers are needed to help with this event. Individuals wishing to volunteer do not need to be experienced anglers.
