Hook-to-Plate Family Fishing Event
Saturday, April 6, 2019, 8 a.m-noon
Cortez Park, 3434 W. Dunlap Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85051
This Hook-to-Plate event will allow anglers to learn how to catch fish, clean the catch, and cook the catch! The Breadfruit and Rum Bar will be on-hand for cleaning and cooking demonstrations.
There will be a youth license giveaway (age 10-17) to the first 100 youth who sign up and attend the event; the Phoenix Sportsman’s Warehouse will hold a kids’ drawing for prizes and giveaways (including fishing gear); the Uptown Farmer’s Market will have produce/farmer’s stand on site for people to purchase fresh, locally-grown produce that pairs well with fish to take home with their “catch of the day,” and the AZ Farm Bureau will provide recipe cards.
The Arizona Game and Fish will be working with Phoenix District 1 Councilwoman, Thelda Williams, along with partners City of Phoenix, H.E.C.H.O., and Phoenix Police Department to provide a morning of free, family and community fishing and fun.
Game and Fish staff from the Sport Fishing Education Program and volunteer instructors will be on hand to provide tips on fishing and answer your angling questions. Bring your own equipment or there will be loaner rods available. Participants, who register at the Game and Fish booth, will be provided bait and will not need a fishing license during the hours of the event.
