Catch smiles at AZGFD Expo Kids Fishing Area
When bluegill bite and rod tips bounce, the kids’ facial expressions range from shock and excitement to joy and laughter. The Kids Fishing Area at the Arizona Game and Fish Department Outdoor Expo, presented by Shikar Safari Club International, is one of the event’s most popular booths.
See video of the action from last year.
Two bubbling tanks will be lined with equally bubbly kids – and all ages will have an opportunity to try their hands at fishing.
The family-friendly Expo will be held March 25-26 at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility, just west of Interstate 17 on Carefree Highway. The Expo features FREE admission and parking and is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
For some kids, it will be their first fishing experience.
Our volunteer experts will help remove fish from hooks and ensure a memorable experience for beginning and novice anglers.
Gold sponsors are OneAZ Credit Union and Shooter’s World/Daniel Defense. Silver sponsors are Sportsmen’s Alliance, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Target Factory and Cabela’s.
