Chris Macarthy Memorial Fishing Derby
Families can visit the River Hill Pond at Mitchell Memorial Forest anytime between 7 a.m.-2 p.m. on June 23 to participate for as long as they wish in the Chris Macarthy Memorial Fishing Derby.
The pond will be stocked with 250 pounds of channel catfish for the event. Children 12 and under who catch one of 50 tagged fish will win a trophy, and every child who catches a fish will receive a special certificate to commemorate their accomplishment.
Catfish caught during the event hours may be taken home. All other fish must be caught and released. Participants must bring their own equipment. Live bait will be available for purchase at the event. Fish will be stocked in the pond the evening prior to the event. The derby is free of charge and advance reservations are not necessary to participate.
