A family-favorite fishing event for the last 3 decades!
Our annual OSFC Kid's Fisheree is open to children ages 3-12 and has been a community and Club favorite for the last 30+ years. This 100% free event is fueled by our dedicated volunteers, generous sponsors and Otter Street Fishing Club Board.
All registered children receive free entry into the fishing contest, free lunch, worms to fish, door prize, and a fishing pole donated by sponsors!
Registration for this year's event is online and is strictly limited to the first 300 kids registered! Deadline to register is August 8, 2023, or when the cap of the first 300 children are registered.
Check out this quick video about the event.
As many as you’d like, provided they are between the ages of 3-12. The form allows for 4 registrations at a time.
While Membership to OSFC is not required, it is an excellent way to help us continue to fund free events like this for the youth in our community.
Additionally there are many benefits to membership, and dues also go directly into conservation projects right here in your local fishing community (fishing piers and docks, events like this, DNR studies, etc.) Click here to join our club on an annual basis or lifetime option - your kiddos can become members, too!
It is always the Monday before the event. But, is limited to the first 300 children. Whichever occurs first.
While we do accept walk-ins, it is STRONGLY recommended to register, as we cap the free bonus prizes, grand prizes, and fishing pole to the first 300 kids (draw prizes and the free fishing pole are reserved solely for registered children). The deadline to register is always the Monday before the event or the first 300 children registered.
The tent is placed at the corner of Menominee Drive & Hazel Street in Oshkosh. You can fish anywhere along the shoreline (including the Point), provided you can hear the PA system as we do announce prize winners that way.
The 2023 event will be held Saturday, August 12th. You can start checking-in your registered child(ren) at 8:30, and must be completely checked-in by 9:45. Flare start at 10am, and fishing concludes at 12:00pm.
Top 3 for the following categories (with trophies for each place within each category!)
REGISTER them them by the deadline and be one of the first 300 kids. We also have amazing event sponsors who donate GRAND prizes in memoriam of their loved ones…including kid’s bikes, outdoor gear, etc.

No, you must fish from shore near the headquarters.
Yes, we do!
We ask that you register only those you will be attending with.
Our online registration form allows for four children to be registered on one form. If you have more than 4 children that you will be bringing to this event, follow these important next steps:
you must submit this form
then you must complete the process again (fill out a new form) using another, different email address (if not, the second registration will not work).
Email us with questions (please note: we do not monitor our inbox 24/7, and this event hard caps at 300 children). Emailing doesn't guarantee a spot.
Thank you to our generous prize donors, sponsors, volunteers and Board Members for making this happen year after year! We're excited for another wonderful year.
...each registered child will receive one of these fishing poles (free!) on the morning of the event!
