You and your family are invited to come join us at a special Game and Parks Community Fishing Night at Lake Halleck in Papillion, NE this Tuesday night, July 16 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Come, get some fresh air, sample some Dutch oven cooking and find out how easy and fun fishing is!
Hungry sunfish await you!
We at Game and Parks will be hosting the event. We will be furnishing loaner fishing tackle and bait as well as fishing instruction. As an added bonus, Game and Parks staff will be offering Dutch oven cooking tips with free samples to try (as long as supplies last). Individuals can also register for the popular Take ‘Em Fishing challenge on-site. The Weekly TV Outdoor Report on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News will be broadcasting live at the event, too.
Larry Pape, Game and Parks Fisheries Outdoor Education Specialist, says community fishing nights provide a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to learn about nature and outdoor activities, plus discover fishing or even sharpen those rusty fishing skills.
“As folks get ready to hit the lake or embark on their summer vacations, we want to give them the basics of fishing, or at least a quick refresher on the lifestyle, and have them experience first-hand how enjoyable and relaxing fishing can be,” Pape said. “Bring the kids, they’re welcome.” he added.
Lake Halleck is located just a quarter mile to the east of the intersection of Washington and Lincoln Streets in downtown Papillion. Look for the Game and Parks’ Fishing Trailer and Tables, where staff will be waiting to assist you.
All adults 16 years of age and older will need a fishing permit in order to fish at a Community Fishing Night event. Permits can be acquired at this link. Kids under the age of 16 do not need a fishing permit. For information about Nebraska fishing laws and regulations, see the current Nebraska Fishing Guide.
