Lake Norman State Park

The day begins at 10 am. The festivities conclude at 4 pm.

The CFFC annual club picnic is one of our club's most popular and well attended events. It is whole family oriented. Bring you kids and friends. The small $10.00 per person fee covers all the food, drinks, and shelter rental. Our primary food of BBQ pork and chicken with sides will be catered by the popular City Barbeque restaurant.

We are asking that participants also provide one of your favorite picnic dishes for everyone to share. Salads, mac-cheese, beans, fruits and desserts are always popular.

We will have fly casting assistance, casting contests, fly tying demos, and the ever popular picnic raffle. Bring your favorite fly rod and tune up that casting and participate in a casting contest.

Event Schedule:

  • 10:00 AM Picnic Starts.
  • 10:00 AM - and throughout the day – fly tying demos at the shelter.
  • 10:00 AM - Casting help and tune ups by the lake (bring your rod or use one of the club’s rods).
  • 11:00 AM - Fly Casting Contest by the lake—win a rod (bring your rod or use one of the club’s rods).

  • 1:15 PM   - Annual Picnic Raffle.
  • 2:00 PM   - 4:00 PM - Casting and fly tying continue; social time together continues.

You don't want to miss out on the fantastic raffle event.  There will be several Rods and Reels along with loads of other fishing and non fishing things for everyone.  I will post more when they come in.

Fishing is not only allowed but encouraged! Anglers may bring their own watercraft or rent kayaks, paddle boards, and canoes at the visitor center on Park Lake. We do not discriminate -fly fishing or spinning rigs may be used in accordance with regulations of the NC Wildlife Resources Commission.
