The Uwharrie National Forest, partners to host “Kid’s Fishing Day”
The Uwharrie National Forest, along with NC Wildlife Resources Commission and
the Little River Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, will host Kid’s Fishing Day on June 25, 2022. The event
will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Badin Lake Recreation Area at the King’s Mountain Point Day Use Area.
Fishing equipment, raffle prizes, lunch, and more will be available.
This annual event allows kids 16 years and younger
to fish for free and doesn’t require a fishing license. Fishing poles and bait will be available, and a hot dog lunch
will be provided while supplies last. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Staff and volunteers will be onsite to
assist with fishing.
Participants can register near the parking area upon arrival. All children will receive a Little
Jakes Membership into the National Wild Turkey Federation. Event hosts will provide adults with a raffle ticket for each child
and award prizes during lunch. Participants need to be present to claim raffle prizes.
Other outdoor activities onsite
will include BB gun target shooting, U.S Capitol Christmas Tree ornament making, fire engine tours, skins and skulls, and
Smokey Bear. Events will take place rain or shine.
