It is a great way to introduce youth and newcomers to outdoor sports while teaching them about the important role that hunting and fishing have for Georgia’s wildlife conservation programs.

Kids 15 and younger should come to Buford Dam Lower Pool Park between 9 am and 1 pm for a FREE, fun day of fishing and more.  The Georgia WRD will provide bait and stock trout for the event.   Kids need to be accompanied by an adult and should bring their own fishing poles if possible.  There’ll also be FREE hot dogs, drinks and snacks.   For more information, contact William Goldman at 770-535-5498.
