DNR State Fair Fishin’ Pond seeks volunteers for 2024

Last Updated on June 3, 2024 by Indiana Department of Natural Resources

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) seeks volunteers to help at the Fishin’ Pond at the Indiana State Fair, which runs Aug. 2-18.

The Fishin’ Pond is an immersive fishing experience for ages 5-17 that is free upon entrance to the fair and offered on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings and afternoons of the fair. Without volunteer help, this popular opportunity that connects kids and families to fishing wouldn’t be possible.

Fishin’ Pond volunteers handle various duties, including registering participants, baiting hooks, removing fish from the hook, preparing fishing equipment for use, and guiding families around the pond. In-person training will be provided for all volunteers.

To help make the annual Fishin’ Pond a success once again, please consider sharing your skills and registering to volunteer for one or more shifts at bit.ly/FishinPondVolunteer.

Volunteers receive a free parking pass, State Fair entry for the days worked, and a DNR volunteer T-shirt.
