Family Fishing Day at Heritage Lake

Saturday, 6 June from 10 AM to 2 PM

$6 per family

Sign up on Eventbrite by Wednesday, 3 June.

Come join a fun social distancing event at Heritage Lake. We will supply you with all the equipment and bait you need, but you are still welcome to use your own. We encourage catch and release at the base lakes. As always though, you are welcome to keep your fish as long as you are adhere with state regulations. For families that have never fished before we will offer some instruction on how to cast, bait a hook, and safely remove a fish. You will all have 1 hour time slots for your family to fish. All families will be placed at least 50 ft apart at designated stations. Everyone is required to wear a mask while within 6 ft of a person outside of your household. Each family is encouraged to bring water, lawn chairs, hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Thanks to SD Game Fish and Parks and CE for waiving the fishing license for this event only. If you plan to continue to fish on base in the future you will need a license.

For more information, please call ODR 605-385-2994.

Must be a DOD cardholder with access to Ellsworth AFB to participate.
