Oakley’s annual Kids' Fishing Derby will be held on Saturday, Aug. 12, at the Antioch-Oakley pier off of Bridgehead Road.  

This catch-and-release derby is for children up to age 15, and registration is free. Preregistration is available at Oakley City Hall, 3231 Main St., and also at Dan’s Delta Outdoors, 1625 Main St., in Oakley.  

Registration will also be available at the pier the day of the event. Registration and check-in are from 8 to 9 a.m., with the Derby running from 9 to 11 a.m.  

Participants should plan to bring their own poles. Only a few loaner poles will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Free bait will be provided, along with a free lunch, which will be served after the derby concludes.
