The U.S Forest Service, in cooperation with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service 4-H Program and North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, will sponsor a fun-filled day of fishing on June 1st. All children ages 12 and under are invited to test their skills at the fishing derby, to be held at Cherokee Lake from 7:30 a.m. until noon.
Pre-registration is available at the U.S. Forest Service office, Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Registration at the site will begin at 7:00 a.m. and will end at 9:00 a.m. Children will be allowed to fish that do not register, but will not be eligible for the prize drawings. All registered children will be issued a number. Those that stay for the duration of the event will be entered in the prize drawings.
All children attending the event must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Snacks, drinks and fishing bait will be provided, but each participant will need to bring their own fishing pole.
For more information, contact the U.S. Forest Service at 828-837-5152.
