Join the annual Oakley Kids Fishing Derby Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Antioch and Oakley pier off Bridgehead Road.
This ‘catch and release’ derby is for children up to age 15, and registration is free. Preregistration is available in Oakley at city hall, 3231 Main St.; Hook, Line & Sinker, 3100 Main St.; and Dan’s Delta Outdoors, 1625 Main St. Participants may also register the day of the event at the pier.
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 fishing poles if possible, but a limited number of loaner poles will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Free bait and hooks will be provided. A free lunch will be served after the derby concludes.
Awards will be given for largest fish, smallest fish and most fish caught for the following age categories: ages 2 to 5, 6 to 10 and 11 to 15.
This is a great chance to get kids started in the great sport of fishing.
