Forbes’ junior anglers will have an opportunity to cast a line on Sunday.
Forbes is one of a number of centres throughout NSW chosen as a site for Gone Fishing Day on October 14 at Lake Forbes, from 9am to 3pm on the final day of the school holidays.
All activities are free and there is no need to register for the event.
You also won’t need a fishing licence to take part.
It doesn't matter if you haven't fished before or if you're the keenest of anglers, Gone Fishing Day is for everyone.
Just bring yourself, family and friends for a great day at Apex Park.
Along with the competition children will receive free goodie bags with bonus fishing lures, fishing tip classes by local experts.
If you don’t want to catch a fish but want to get up close to a fish there’ll be touch tank, loads of kids activities, a RMS boating safety stand and lots more fishing stuff on show.
Snappy, Gone Fishing Day’s crab mascot, will also be making an appearance in Forbes and handing out lots of cool prizes.
