The Carson National Forest, New Mexico Department of Game & Fish, the Village of Questa, Enchanted Circle Trout Unlimited and the Town of Taos, and local businesses are proud to bring you the “2016 Kid’s Fish Fiesta”. The Kid’s Fish Fiesta is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 2016 located at Eagle Rock Lake in Questa (approximately 1.3 miles east of Questa, NM on HWY 38).  The Kid’s Fish Fiesta will start at 9:00 a.m. with registration.  Registration closes at 11:00 a.m. and event will end at 12:00 noon.

This is a Drug and Alcohol Free event. The Kid’s Fish Fiesta is primarily for youth, ages 11 and younger, to have a fun learning experience in fish biology and anatomy, fishing skills, outdoor ethics, archery as well as provide a fishing opportunity for the youth at no charge. On June 4, 2016, everyone is allowed to fish without a license or a Habitat Stamp validation, in honor of National Free Fishing Day.  All other fishing rules still apply.

Participants and their parents/guardians will tour a series of educational stations.  Loaner poles are available for those who need them.  These booths may be visited before or after fishing.  Lunch will be provided.  We invite you and your family to the Free Kid’s Fish Fiesta.  For more information, contact Michael Gatlin, USDA Forest Service, Carson National Forest at 575- 758-6252.
