Youth Fishing Day

June 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am


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. The grand prize is a lifetime sportsman license, which includes freshwater and saltwater fishing privileges, as well as hunting privileges, donated by Neuse Sport Shop, located in Kinston. The first prize is a lifetime freshwater fishing license, donated by the N.C. State Council of Trout Unlimited. Neuse Sport Shop is donating tackle boxes, rod-and-reel combos and fishing line, while the Wildlife Commission is donating prizes, such as fishing towels, playing cards and tackle boxes.
