Family Fishing Evenings is a Nebraska Game and Parks program designed to help make family fishing adventures possible and rewarding. Events are free and fishing equipment, bait and staff will be available to help people of all ages learn the basics of this fun and relaxing activity. Everyone is invited regardless of their age or skills. Those 16 years of age and over wishing to fish will need a valid fishing license. Look for the colorful Game and Parks fishing trailer.
Birdwood is called Fire Lake by some and is the first lake on Interstate 80 west of North Platte. To get to the lake, take South River Road or Walker Road west, then turn onto Homestead Road.
Take up the fishing challenge
The Take ‘Em Fishing Challenge introduced by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission encourages experienced anglers to fish new or outdated anglers. Share your passion with someone you love, be it a grandchild, child, spouse, neighbor, coworker or friend, it doesn’t matter if they’ve never fished before, or if they just hasn’t fished for a while.
Every time you go, submit a photo of yourself fishing with the person you took, tell us about your trip and you will automatically be enrolled in our Take ‘Em Fishing drawing. Prize winners will be contacted by Nebraska Game and Parks and announced monthly on social media.
