ENID LAKE – National Hunting and Fishing Day Scheduled for September 27.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Enid Lake would like to invite everyone to “Hunting and Fishing Day” scheduled at Riverview Recreation Area located below the dam at Enid Lake on September 27.
“We encourage everyone to come and experience the great outdoors and to recognize the important role everyone has in preserving and improving our natural resources,” said Park Ranger Chris Hannaford
“In return, we can introduce younger generations to the outdoors.”
The action kicks off at 8 a.m. with a youth fishing rodeo. Young anglers between the ages of 3-15 may participate in the event. Only cane poles equipped with one hook will be allowed during the event.
Enid Park Rangers encourage all participants to bring their own fishing gear including: cane poles, fishing tackle, stringers and bait. A limited amount of cane poles and bait will be available onsite.

Free wildlife food plot seed will be given away to the first 200 visitors. The day ends at 1:30.
