29th Annual Fishing Derby

The City of Little Rock Parks & Recreation will be hosting the 29th Annual Fishing Derby on Thursday, July 17, 2014, at MacArthur Park.

The Derby, which is also sponsored by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, is open to children ages six (6)  - fifteen (15) and will take place from 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM.  More than 1,000 children from Central Arkansas are expected to participate.

The public is encouraged to bring its own equipment and bait, as only a limited number of cane poles will be available.  There will be no rods and reels allowed during the derby.

The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, which will be stocking the pond, will tag a limited number of “prize fish”. Any child who catches a “tagged” fish will be eligible to win one of the prizes provided by Little Rock Parks & Recreation, Arkansas Game & Fish Commission and Bass Pro Shops. The first boy and girl to catch a “prize fish” will each win a bike, donated by Academy Sports+Outdoors.

For more information, please contact Mike Garrity, Assistant Recreation Supervisor, at (501) 371-6858.
