The following events located on the NDOW website are close and provide great entertainment. There are also events located throughout the state if you happen to be traveling through one of the other counties. I can not say enough about the event at Echo Canyon State Park. We had a chance to attend this fantastic fishing derby a few years ago. The food is great and the prizes will blow you away. You are sure to have more fun than you know what to do with in one day. Echo Canyon State Park is located just outside of Pioche, Nevada. It happens to be run by one of the coolest rangers in the state, Ben Johnson. You can reach him by phone at 775.962.5102, if you are looking for more information.
Cave Lake State Park also has a kids fishing derby. Registration starts at 8 am and the event ends at 11:30 am. You can contact Ely NDOW at 775.289.1655 for more information. We plan to attend our local event this year, and I know my kids are excited!
