Kids Fishing Day

Kids Fishing Day is held each year in June
 

Since 1995 thousands of youngsters and adults have taken part in Great Falls annual fishing day for kids.  A few of them catch fish, while everyone learns something at the educational events.

Our goal is to familiarize youngsters with the basic elements of fishing; including types of tackle, casting, fly-tying, fish identification, safety and fishing ethics.

Each year the Great Falls Chapter of Walleyes Unlimited provides 1,000 free fishing rod and reel combinations or tackle boxes. Those who attend a series of educational presentations will receive fishing gear.  Others who support the event through donations, time and materials include Missouri River Fly Fishers, Great Falls Cross Country Club, Great Falls area Amateur Radio Club, Great Falls Public Schools, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, US Forestry Service and Malmstrom Air Force Base.

Wadsworth Pond is located on the West side of Great Falls.  Take Central Avenue West to 34th Street NW, turn on Wilkinson Lane and follow the signs to the pond.
