Join us for an exciting fishing derby open to all! Compete in categories such as longest, shortest, greatest variety of fish and best-dressed fisherman. The derby comprises 5 age groups: 5 and under, 6 to 9, 10-13, 14-17, and 18 and older. Remember to bring your fishing pole, bait and a bucket or cooler to transport your catches to the weigh-in station. All fish must be alive for measurement to qualify. The award for the best-dressed fisherman will be judged and announced at 10:30 am, while other awards will follow at 11:15 am. Participants aged 16 and above must have a fishing license. Secure your spot among the 50 participants by registering.
