Kids Fishing Day Sunday June 30

9th Annual Kids Fishing Day Sunday June 30

Started in 2005 as a joint project between the Lake Association and the Michigan DNR, Kids Fishing Day has grown to where last year over 500 kids and parents enjoyed a day of family fun and fishing at beautiful Veronica Valley Park in Leelanau County. Today the event is backed by a dedicated group of 20 Sponsors and Supporters (listed below). Kids Fishing Day is FREE to all and features fishing for over 1,500 bluegills that are stocked in the pond. Bait and tackle, hotdogs and pop, “fish painting,” nature displays, fly fishing demonstration, and more are all provided. As an added treat this year, the Wings of Wonder Raptor Show will be here to entertain and educate the kids about hawks, owls and other wild birds.
The fun starts at 11a.m. and runs to 3p.m. So grab your kids, grandkids, neighbor kids, or any other kids, and come out and join us for a magical day of family fun and fishing. Bring rods and reels if you have them; if you don’t we have some for you to use. If you have any questions, or you are interested in helping at Kids Fishing Day, please contact: Pete Taylor, phone 231-590-3309 or email:
