FOUNTAIN VALLEY – The Orange County Department of Harbors Beaches and Parks along with Western Fishing & Boating Radio will be hosting the sixth annual Free Kids Fishing Derby at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. This event is on Saturday, March 31, 2007 with fishing starting at 9:00am sharp. The lucky angler who catches the largest trout will win a prize package worth over $500.
“Every young angler will go home with a prize” states Steven Fukuto, one of the hosts of Western Fishing & Boating Radio. “And, after fishing, everyone can enjoy a free hot dog barbecue courtesy of Sam’s Club in Fountain Valley.” There are three age divisions: 7 years and under; 8 to 11years and 12 to 15 years of age. “The competition is stiff, and the younger age group, as well as the young lady anglers has been dominating the scoreboard over the past few years” Fukuto added. Registration begins at 7:00am. The derby runs from 9:00 to 12:00pm followed by the lunch and awards ceremony hosted by the crew of Western Fishing & Boating Radio.
“We appreciate the generous support from the local community,” stated Joanne Taylor, the Park Ranger at Mile Square Park.

Bass are toys. Gills and Trout are food.

UnsureUnfortunately, Bob Marriott's Fly Fishing store has their Spring Fly Fishing Educational Expo on the same day. Can't be in two places at one time. Now TN2 don't ask me why.Wink

I am looking for volunteers for the derby that will be held Saturday March 31, 2007 at the north lake of Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley . Registration starts at 7:00am. Setup at 6:00am
Volunteers are needed to assist in registration with the kids, providing assistance along the lake during the derby, be watchful to enforce that parents do not fish for the kids, and help in assembling the raffle prizes for the kids.
The South Bay Anglers will be there to cook hot dogs for the kids and I am sure they would not turn down any assistance. It will be a fun day and the hot dogs are on me!
For those who can help, have them send a email with their email address and I will email them a parking pass for the day.
Thanks
