Carp Fish & Fun Day Celebrates Its Fifth Year!


Uxbridge, MA. For the past five years, River Bend Farm Visitor Center in Uxbridge, MA has been the site of the Annual Carp Fish and Fun Day. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, September 9th from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event is free and open to anglers of all ages and experience.

According to Bill Paul of Uxbridge, a volunteer with the National Park Service Volunteer in Parks (VIP) Program, “Carp fishing is more challenging than you may think. In the U.S, carp fishing hasn’t really taken off, but in Europe and other parts of the world, carp fishing is as popular as bass fishing is here.”

To try your skill at carp fishing, bring your own pole. Materials and instructions to make special bait rigs will be provided. Experienced anglers will be on hand to assist and demonstrate techniques. An award certificate will be given to each person who catches a carp.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the event in a variety of categories, including: Largest Carp Caught, Most Carp Caught, Oldest Person to Catch a Carp, Youngest Person to Catch a Carp, and the perennial favorite, Ranger’s Choice Award.

For more information, contact the Blackstone River & Canal Heritage State Park, River Bend Farm Visitor Center, 287 Oak Street, Uxbridge, MA (508) 278-7604.
