June Is Time To Check Out Some Kids’ Fishing Events

GON Staff | May 30, 2023

Jillian Melvin, 13, of Grantville, with a Talbot County bass she caught from a private pond on Oct. 22, 2022.

School is out, and the fish ponds are open! June is the month when it’s pretty easy to find a Kids’ Fishing Event taking place, even if you have to ride a little piece to get to one. If you can’t make one of these scheduled events, it doesn’t matter. There are so many public opportunities out there it makes you glad to be a Georgia resident. You’ve got PFAs, State Park Lakes, water-supply reservoirs and a number of trout streams that cater to youth. Get over to and check out “Georgia Bream Ready To Bed” at Bluegill bed throughout the summer, and these tasty panfish make for some fun fishing with kids.
