Kids Free Fishing DayJune 01, 2013
This year's "Kids Free Fishing Day" event scheduled for Saturday, June 1 will be a great way to learn how to fish or develop your fishing skills. Representatives and volunteers from the U.S. Forest Service and Appalachian Mountain Club will provide a day's wealth of experience and knowledge to help the beginning angler get started.
Participants, who register on the morning of the event, will receive a “passport” outlining 5 stations that must be completed before they can begin fishing. Educational and instructional skill stations will include: Knot Tying; Fish ID; Casting; Ecology; Macro Invertebrates; and Fishing. Each station activity will take 15-20 minutes to complete and once an activity has been completed, the passport will be stamped and the aspiring angler will be one step closer to casting a line in the stocked fishing pond.
The free event will take place from 10am - 3pm rain or shine (*registration cut-off is 12pm) and all ages are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and all persons should bring proper footwear and clothing as well as personal sun protection (hat, sunglasses, spf) and bug repellent. The fishing pond at Wildcat Mountain is accessible via the “C lot” entrance located approximately a quarter mile past the main entrance on the north-bound side of Rt. 16 heading toward Gorham, New Hampshire.
Be sure to ride the Snowcat Triple chair lift and join us for a children's Easter egg hunt (limited to 12 and under) on the beginner trail "Snowcat Trail". Treats and other special prizes will be found within the eggs including one that holds a 2014/15 Junior/Young Adult Granite Season Pass.
Join us for Opening Day on May 24! We'll be running 10 a.m to 5 p.m. weekends only until June 8. Daily summer operations will begin on June 14!
