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.
