Get hooked on fishing! On Saturday, April 29, Buncombe County Recreation Services, in partnership with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, will host a Kids Fishing Derby at Owen Park (875 Warren Wilson Road). The fishing tournament is open to all children through age 15; no fishing license is required for children under 16. Check-in and registration begins at 8:00 a.m. The derby starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m. Cost is $5.00 per child and includes snacks, hot dog lunch and prizes for largest fish, smallest fish and the most fish caught.
Fishing Poles will be available from the NC Wildlife Commission on a first-come, first-served basis. Recreation Services will supply a bucket and bait for each competitor’s catch. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing supplies. This is a “Catch and Release” event. After the fish have been measured, they will be released back into the ponds.
