FIRST TIME ANGLER? LEARN THE BASICS AT A KIDS FISHING EVENT: SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. — Looking for a way to spend more time with a child or grandchild this summer? Introduce them to fishing. Research shows that most people are introduced to fishing by a family member, and most consider a family member to be their best fishing friend.
Kids fishing events are sponsored across the state and provide fishing lessons to both children (under age 16) and parents from knowledgeable instructors. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Resources Division co-sponsors most events by providing channel catfish and trout to improve fishing, educational materials for participants and guidance for sponsors.
Visit www.gofishgeorgia.com , select “Fishing,” then “Kids Fishing.” Here you will find tips on fishing with kids, recommended places to take kids, a “kids first fish certificate,” and a link to a calendar where you can find local events.
