KIDS' FREE FISHING DAY - 2024
Kids' Free Fishing Day has been a tradition with Sparks Rotary going on 23 years! Every second week in June we host two separate days of fishing at the Sparks Marina. The first day is reserved for all area adaptive youth while the second day is open to all area youth. Our Rotarians and other members of the community provide coaching and support to area youth who would like to learn how to fish and spend some time in the outdoors of Nevada. All fishing gear and food is provided free to the participants. We'd like to extend a special thank you to the team from the Nevada Department of Wildlife and the City of Sparks for all of their support of this event!
