Event Activities

Bay Area Fishing Tournament is a family-friendly event. We will have plenty of activities for everyone in the family, even if they aren't into fishing! Kids can practice fishing in the fishing pond, use a bow at the archery skills challenge or have fun at one of our many arts & crafts tables. Adults can enjoy a cold brew and some good food in the beer tent while listening to some live music at night. Come out and join us. We're sure you'll get hooked!

Our children's fishing pond is a great way to introduce your child to fishing! Children will have the opportunity to learn how to properly bait a hook, set a hook, and reel
