Family Fishing Fiesta
Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Fish! Play Games! Win Prizes!
Come join the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the N.C. State Parks on Saturday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Jordan Lake State Park for a free Family Fishing Fiesta. 
Gather at White Oak Recreation Area on White Oak Beach Rd., Apex, to enjoy bank fishing, plus over a dozen hands-on activities and demonstrations. You can:
  • Learn how to cast and how to fillet a fish
  • Watch a tackle demonstration
  • Meet biologists, park rangers and law enforcement personnel, many of whom speak English and Spanish
  • Check out an electrofishing boat
  • And much more!
Loaner fishing rods and bait are free on a first-come, first-served basis. Everyone fishes for FREE — no license required for the Family Fishing Fiesta!
Young anglers will receive prizes for special catches, and participants 11 and younger who participate in a scavenger hunt will receive a free tackle box  and a chance to enter the youth drawing to win prizes such as fishing poles and life jackets! Anglers 12 and older will be entered into a drawing to win a lifetime freshwater fishing license, courtesy of the American Fisheries Society, a composting bin, or a one-year subscription to the Wildlife Commission’s award-winning magazine, Wildlife in North Carolina.
