The Kids Fishing Tournament at Lake Julian Park will take place on Saturday, May 14. The semi-annual event is open to all children ages 15 and under and is sponsored by Buncombe County Recreation Services.

The Kid’s Fishing Tournament begins at 8:30 a.m. and is over promptly at 11:30 a.m. Registration will be on site the day of the tournament. The cost for the Tournament is $10 per child, which covers fishing bait, snacks and a Free Hot Dog lunch at the conclusion of the tournament. No fishing license is required for children under 16 years of age.

This is a Catch and Release event. Lake Julian Park will supply a bucket for each competitor’s catch. After the fish has been weighed and measured, it will be released back into the lake. Participants bring their own pole. .

Fishing is allowed anyplace inside the Lake Julian Park boundaries. No boat fishing is allowed. All children must be accompanied by at least one adult.

There are prizes galore! Children will be grouped into one of five age categories and prizes will be awarded in each of these categories. Prizes will be given for the biggest fish, the smallest fish and the most fish caught. In addition, all competitors in every age group will have an opportunity to show off their casting skill. Casting poles and targets are provided by Lake Julian Park and children can demonstrate their ability anytime during the Tournament. There are prizes for the winners of the casting competition, too.
