The fish and wildlife team wants New Jersey’s families to help get kids “hooked on fishing” by hosting a Youth Fishing Challenge at a locations around the state.

Their goal for 2018 is to have at least one YFC event in every county. This family-oriented event can be an introduction to New Jersey’s excellent fishing opportunities while encouraging youth to avoid drugs, alcohol and tobacco by pursuing fun activities like fishing with friends and family.
