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.
