Community Fishing Nights

Community Fishing Nights

Growing up I was a real Tomboy. I had three brothers and a large family of boys/men. I was very involved in playing video games like Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto, I loved throwing around the football and working to perfect my left-handed spiral, but most of all I love fishing, especially with my grandpa. I didn’t enjoy putting the worms on the hook, but I sure loved the adrenaline rush of catching a big fish after waiting so patiently. What a GREAT TIME! So many wonderful memories with not only with my immediate family, but my extended family. The best times with my family involved the outdoors! I would encourage you to take some time to participate in one of the many Community Fishing Nights across Nebraska. Heck, maybe I can finally get Franzman out for his first fishing experience!

Community Fishing Nights: Formerly known as Family Fishing Nights, are sponsored by Nebraska Game and Parks and held at 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.

How it Works: On the evening of the event, head out to the location specified and look for the Game and Parks’ Fishing Trailer, where staff will be waiting to assist and provide instruction. Free loaner equipment such as rods, reels and bait will also be available to participants.
