Scheduled each year on the 3rd Saturday of May, we anticipate 180-230 kids to participate. Come out to help kids learn the basics of rigging and catching fish, with memories that will last a lifetime.
 
Club members and volunteers help with registration, making lunch, stuffing goodie bags (each kid gets one), rental fishing poles, measuring caught fish, untangling lines, setup and takedown of tables and signage.

Our first-ever event took place May 22, 2010 with 92 youngsters in attendance. Another 40+ adults joined their kids to provide technical and emotional support. We've grown to serving lunch to more than 500 adults and kids along with providing prizes to boys and girls in each age category from 3-13 who catch the most and biggest fish.

Kids typically register between 9-10 am with the fishing derby starting when the horn blows at 10:00 sharp. At 12:00 Noon, fishing ends and everyone comes to lunch at our patio and awaits the final tallies of fish in anxious anticipation of potentially winning an award, or being drawn in raffle drawing for another 50-70 items for kids who may not have won their age group.  Overall, everyone has a fun time being with family and watching the happy faces of kids enjoying themselves at our natural playground at the Park.
