The Rock Springs Parks And Recreation Department is set to host the Huck Finn kids fishing derby from 9 a.m. to noon, June 3, 2017 at Rock Springs Pond located at the Paul J. Wataha Recreation Complex.
Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. with fishing to begin at 9 a.m.
The derby is open to kids ages 3 to 12, with two age divisions. All participants should be accompanied by an adult.
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories: longest fish, smallest fish, biggest fish by pound, and total weight of all fish caught. A casting contest will also take place during the derby.
