Event Description:
The DNR’s Go FishIN program operates the Fishin' Pond during the State Fair. This will be our 13th year. The Fishin' Pond allows children ages 5-17 the opportunity to fish for free. Parents sign-up their kids at the registration table, families listen to a short talk about fishing safety, and then the kids can fish for up to 15 min. After fishing, the whole family can learn more about Indiana fish through a coloring activity and playing with fishy friends. In 2017, nearly 3,700 kids fished at the Pond, and, for many of them, this was their first fishing experience.  Make sure to swing by the backside of the DNR building and join in on the action!
