Hooked on Cornelius 2017


We are partnering with North Carolina State Parks, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists and the Mecklenburg County and Town of Davidson Parks and Recreation Departments to present this year's event, held in conjunction with our annual Earth Day Celebration!

The first 40 registered participants will receive a youth tackle box. Attendees that are not registered may not be able to fish but will be able to take part in the other activities. Please call us at 704-892-6031 x160 with any questions or to register over the phone - or you can register online - it's FREE!

WE HAVE SOLD OUT THE FIRST 40 SPACES. All children who attend our Earth Day Celebration and Hooked on Cornelius Event should still be able to fish on Saturday, based on demand, even though tackle boxes are all claimed. Be sure to drop by the PARC tent located by the main Earth Day activities for on-site registration.
