      Spring 2019 Kids Fishing Tournament at Charles D. Owen Park

      The semi-annual event is open to all children ages 15 and under and is sponsored by Buncombe County Recreation Services. Fishing begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends promptly at 11:30 a.m. Register online now through May 16 at midnight. On-site registration will also be available at 8:00 a.m. the day of the tournament. Your registration fee covers fishing bait, snacks, and a hot dog lunch at the conclusion of the tournament. No fishing license is required for children under 16 years of age. This is a catch and release event. Charles D. Owen Park will supply a bucket for each competitor’s catch. After the fish has been weighed and measured, it will be released back into the lake. Participants bring their own poles. Fishing is allowed anyplace inside the Charles D. Owen Park boundaries. No boat fishing is allowed. All children must be accompanied by at least one adult. Children will be grouped into one of five age categories and prizes awarded in each category. Prizes will be given for the biggest fish, the smallest fish, and the most fish caught. In addition, all competitors in every age group will have an opportunity to show off their casting skills. Casting poles and targets are provided and children can demonstrate their ability anytime during the tournament. There are prizes for the winners of the casting competition, too!
