Fish can be a very healthy meal choice for kids, providing them with essential nutrients for their brain development. Fishing can also be a great activity for family bonding, a lesson in biology and environmental education, outdoor exercise, and an opportunity to learn a life skill.
To learn more about opportunities for a child to learn fishing skills and to plan your next fishing trip, consult the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website. Click here.
Every day is a free fishing day for kids (no license requirement for children 17 and under)! However, DNR holds 4 free fishing days during the year for the whole family to try out this fun activity. These events are listed specifically here.
