Father's Day Fishing EventAt last year’s event, over 200 children and parents had their poles in the water.

“There is always a great turnout for this event because it is good, free, family fun,” said Joe Walsh, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Events like this—bringing families and communities together— are what parks and recreation is all about.”

The two-acre lake at Victor Ashe Park contains channel catfish ranging from 2-8 pounds, large mouth bass, and bluegill.

The Mast General Store is partnering with the Parks and Recreation Department and is donating prizes to be given away, including a grand prize for the largest fish caught by a father/child team.

Participants should bring their own bait, tackle, fishing poles, and blankets. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the event.

Fishing licenses are required on site for all people fishing over the age of 13.

No pre-registration is necessary for this event; however participants can register for door prizes on the day of the event.
