Discover what swims in the murky waters while learning the fundamentals of using a rod and a reel. No experience needed, just a desire to learn about one of America’s favorite pastimes. Fishing poles and bait provided. Participants will earn the Junior Ranger Angler Badge. For youth ages 7-12 years old with a parent or guardian in attendance.

Advanced registration is required for all individuals. Group sizes are small, and have a strict attendance cap. Only people who pre-registered will be permitted to participate. All fishing equipment will be provided, but to reduce contact, personal equipment is permitted. Face masks are encouraged and required when adequate social distance cannot be maintained. Be sure to bring adequate water.
