Kid fishing events to sweep the state
Kid anglers will get the spotlight with a series of upcoming Kids Fishing Day events throughout the state, a partnership of the U.S. Forest Service and N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.
The events will provide instruction for children, equipment for those who don’t have their own and, at many sites, drawings for fishing-related prizes.
The events are free and open to children 12 and under, though all kids must be accompanied by an adult. Each site will be closed to regular licensed fishing from 8 a.m. until the conclusion. Registration begins one hour prior to the event’s start time.
