On the day of the event young anglers are required to register at the Visitor Center before fishing. Fish entries will be accepted between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Visitor Center. Fishing stations will be set up along the Refuge’s Fishing Loop. A limited amount of fishing poles and bait are available for participants to use at these stations. Fishing is allowed from the shore along designated fishing pools and show pools. Lead sinkers are not allowed.

Activities and games for the whole family begin at 12:00 p.m. in the Visitor Center and include arts and crafts, games, and activities. Certificates will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners for largest perch and pike in four age categories. Prizes, provided by local businesses, will be awarded by random drawing.
