The Annual Kids Fishing Rodeo Day is sponsored by Pickens County Sportsman Club and Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
This year's event will happen Thursday ~ Saturday, May 9-11th, a 3-day event. Those with special needs are able to fish on Thursday, Senior Citizens on Friday and the Kids Fishing Rodeo on Saturday.
Saturday there will be lots of kids with their family and friends, participating in the 'kids only' fishing for trout. Ages 15 years and younger.
This event is to teach kids the sport of trout fishing by letting them, not their parents or another adult, fish and enjoy themselves (and they do every year). Limit 8 trout per fisherman. No licenses required.
After the event ends, fishing will be open to the public but you must have a fishing license.
NOTE: Event will be held in rain as long as not dangerous weather and creek not too high.
