Fishing derby set Sunday at North Park Lake
The Bonner Springs Parks and Recreation Department will have its third annual Spring Youth Fishing Derby 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at North Park Lake, 1200 S. 134th St. This event is free for children ages 15 and under so youngsters can experience first-hand the fun of fishing. Participants will be divided into three different age groups with prizes given for those who catch the longest fish, shortest fish, and the most fish.
Fish that do not meet the legal length limit set by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks must be released back into the lake after they have been measured and counted. Youth are welcome to take home and cook all fish they catch that meet the legal limits.
Parents will be required to have a license if they are fishing; youth participants are not required to have one.
Fishing equipment and bait will be provided for youth that do not have any. Pre-registration is preferred, at 422-7010, but participants may register the day of the event at the lake.
