Kids Fishing Derby is today

August 18, 2012
By GARRY BRANDENBURG , Times-Republican

Today is the KIDS FISHING DERBY at Lake Woodmere, the pond at Riverside Cemetery. It is not too late to make the journey to waters edge. The derby is primarily fun ... for the kids ... and parents or grandparents watching and offering advice and cheerleading services. Derby time begins at 8 a.m. and runs until noon. Come anytime. Youngsters ages 12 or under are invited. Fishing equipment and bait are the responsibility of the parents to provide. For a largely bullhead population of fish in the pond, worms are the bait of choice. One can expect a few other species of fish as well. Who knows the mysteries of this popular attraction? Area businesses and the Izaak Walton League are sponsoring agencies for this year's Kids Fishing Derby. Prizes will be awarded for special catches. This scribe urges all kids up to and including age 12 to come prepared for a fun morning of fishing. Dress for the weather. Drinks will be available for purchase. Hint to parents: Bring a good camera to record the first fish for your youngster.
