Event Details:

Dads, celebrate Father's Day outdoors with your kids.  Grab your lucky fishing gear and get ready to help your little ones reel in a "lunker." Golf course pond #7 will be stocked with hundreds of catfish for them to catch.  This is a great chance for young people to be introduced to fishing, catch their first fish, or even catch dinner for the night.  Trophies will be awarded for heaviest stringer in two age groups (5-8 yrs, 9-12yrs).  This is a youth derby so adults, you can assist, but you'll need to leave the fishing to the kids. Bring your own bait and tackle (one pole per child). Anyone 12 years old or younger can participate, but trophies are reserved for 5-12 year olds.  This event is cosponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.  Door prizes will also be distributed throughout the day.
