Come down to the watering hole and bring your favorite poles and pals for our annual catch-and-release fishing derby! You’ll have an hour to catch as many fish as you can, but don’t forget to try and get the big one. We’ll award trophies for Largest Fish Caught, Smallest Fish Caught, Most Fish Caught and Best Dressed Fisherman. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Fee is per child and includes bait, snacks and activities. Fishermen must supply their own fishing poles. Pre-registration is required, there will be no walk-up registration.
