RESCHEDULE ALERT: Kid's Fishing Day 2019

RESCHEDULE ALERT: Alleghany County Parks and Recreation, the U.S. Forest Service along with Boys’ Home will now host the 29th annual original free Kids Fishing Day on Saturday, May 18th on Dunlap Creek at Boys’ Home. The event is open to kids ages 4 to 15.  All participants must be accompanied by an adult.  No fishing license required but state fishing laws do apply!  Just bring your pole and bait!  Dunlap Creek will be stocked with rainbow trout so all the kids will have the opportunity to catch some really nice fish.  Adults may cast for a child if necessary but the child must land and reel the fish in on their own.  Registration will begin at 8:00 AM with fishing running from 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon followed by a free cookout lunch.  The first 100 participants registered will receive a Kids Fishing Day t-shirt too!  There will also be a casting competition that runs concurrently with the fishing.  After lunch, there will be many prizes randomly given away.  Thanks to all the generous sponsors which allows this all to be at no cost!  Come out for a day full of fun!  For more information please contact Alleghany County Parks and Recreation at 863-6622 and see  If there are any weather related concerns please contact our weather information line at 962-PARK.
