Spend a day enjoying one of the island’s most popular pastimes with this special and free program that is hosted by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and which shines a spotlight on the joys of fishing on the Outer Banks. The Hatteras Island Fish with a Ranger program is a special event that’s held every Monday and Thursday morning in the summer, and which invites anglers of all ages, (and especially young kids), to hit the shore for some great fishing opportunities in the wide salty waters.
The poles and rigs are supplied for attendees, but folks must bring along their own bait. Interested anglers can pre-register in person at the Hatteras Island Museum, which is located adjacent to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in the town of Buxton, starting on the Saturday before the program. (Pre-registration is not available over the phone, via email, or online.) Once you’re signed up, you’ll meet at a local spot to learn all about the joys of fishing with a local National Park Service ranger of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Best of all, the event is free for all participants! Serving as a great way to see how fun fishing can be, this weekly program is a crowd pleaser for visitors of all ages.
