This Is What It’s All About

The USDA Forest Service is sponsoring a fishing day for local children at Max Patch Pond on June 7th!

The events are for children ages 12 years and younger. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The event allows families and friends to share fun, quality time together while learning about one of our nation’s favorite pastimes – fishing. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission co-sponsors these events. No experience is needed for families to participate.

Members from our Land O’ Sky Trout Unlimited will be present to help with the event.  We could use a few more helpers to assist with unhooking fish, untangling lines and baiting hooks.  If you are interested please contact Matt Allenbaugh at  Carpooling for volunteers is available.
