The Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs Program‘s Youth Fishing Challenge is a statewide event to promote fishing among youths and their families. In 2018 it will be held on the first of the state’s two Free Fishing Days, Saturday, June 9, when no license is required to fish regardless of age.
Registered youth participants will be eligible to receive prizes for the fish they catch during the event. Youths must be present at the conclusion of the event to be awarded prizes. Those who are lucky enough to catch a trout tagged as part of the “Hook-A-Winner” Program will receive a special prize following the event.
Prizes for this event were generously donated by Shimano
