Fishing for younger children will begin at 9:00 AM and all participants can begin fishing at 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM - Registration begins at 8:00 AM. Please supply your own fishing equipment and bait-- there will be a limited number of "loaner" fishing poles available. DGIF will be stocking the creek with fish for this event.
The first 350 children will receive free T-shirts (courtesy of James Hardie Building Products), goody bags and will also be entered to win one of a wide assortment of prizes.
An official check-in station will be on-site and trophies will be awarded in a variety of categories and age groups. There will be other activities throughout the event -- bounce houses, casting contests, arts and crafts, face painting, magician, etc.
