Community Fishing Events
Community Fishing events introduce or reintroduce people to the sport of fishing.
Community Fishing events are sponsored by Nebraska Game and Parks and held at park venues across the state designed to introduce or reintroduce families and individuals to the sport of fishing. At these events, Game and Parks staff and Certified Fishing Instructors teach people of all ages who have never been fishing, or haven’t fished for years, the basics of this fun and relaxing activity.
