Families with children 15 years of age and younger are invited to the John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Center to try their hand at fishing during this free fishing event to celebrate National Fishing & Boating Week. Young anglers registered at fishing events across the state can enter a drawing for a chance to win one of more than 150 fishing-related prizes.
You may bring your own fishing equipment and bait (natural bait only - no minnows are allowed). This will be a Catch and Release fishing only event. If you need equipment the Pechmann Center has a number of fishing combos for loan, at the event and worms will be available for purchase.
The event is free of charge. Registration will be done on site and is limited to the first 200 kids 15 years of age and younger and their families. All participants must check-in at the registration booth to receive wrist band prior to fishing. No fishing license is required .
