VALDESE, N.C. (June 1, 2012) — The children’s fishing event, Fun Fishing at the Falls at McGalliard Falls Park in Burke County, originally scheduled for June 2, has been rescheduled for June 9 at 9 a.m.
According to event coordinator Joey Lindsay of the Valdese Recreation Department, the fishing event was postponed because of recent storms, which have the creeks overflowing the bank.
The Fun Fishing at the Falls fishing event is one of 35 that get under way tomorrow to celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week 2012. Supported by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, in cooperation with Neuse Sport Shop, N.C. State Council of Trout Unlimited, Bass Pro Shops and the U.S. Forest Service, these fishing events provide opportunities for young anglers to learn fishing basics, such as casting, knot-tying and tackle selection.
Participants registered at any listed event will be entered into a statewide, random drawing to win 152 fishing-related prizes
