Kids Fishing Day @ McDuffie Public Fishing Area

Fishing together with your child and family can build some powerful memories, so make this a summer to remember! Don’t know how to fish? No problem. There are plenty of on-site volunteers providing assistance at the many statewide kids fishing events scheduled in spring and summer. These events take place in locations where kids are likely to catch fish and are surrounded by people with like-minded interests, which help reinforce the positive experience.

Research shows that most people are introduced to fishing by a family member, and most consider a family member to be their best fishing friend.
