Fishing with First Responders is the perfect opportunity for your child’s life to be impacted by taking them away from electronics for a day and getting them into the great outdoors.

This program provides the excitement and anticipation of catching a fish, access to equipment and a tutorial on the basics, and ultimately having the chance to bond with their local first responders. Poles, bait and tackle provided, or if you have your own pole, feel free to bring it. Kids will have an opportunity to collect free goodies while checking out the latest emergency response equipment.  Your kids won’t want to miss this chance to get to know their local heroes! Kids 16 years and older will need to have a fishing license, contact the Parks and Recreation Department if you need help acquiring one. Pre-registration is required and the rain out date is scheduled for July 13. 

Participating partners include the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, Victoria Fire Department, Victoria Parks and Recreation, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Ridgeview Medical, and Cabin Fever.

This event is over for 2023. Check back next year for 2024 event information.
