DeGray Lake Resort State Park will once again be hosting a fishing derby for children 12 years old and younger on Saturday, June 17 from 8 a.m. until noon.
Golf course pond number seven will be stocked with over 200 channel catfish to increase the chances that all the young anglers will score a big catch.
First through fifth place trophies will be awarded in two age groups, ages 5-8 and 9-12 for the heaviest stringer of up to ten fish. Door prizes will be drawn hourly during the derby.
Participants should bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, drinking water, umbrella, bait, and tackle. Adults may assist children, but must not fish themselves. Only one pole per child will be allowed. Parking will be available across from the horse stables.
The event is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is not necessary. All participants will register at the welcome table upon arrival.

The park is located off Highway 7 between Hot Springs and Arkadelphia, six miles north of I-30 at Caddo Valley (exit 78).
