Free Kids Fishing Derby: Mile Square Park! | @OCParks #Fishing


I know that many of us are deep into the spring baseball season and don't have much time for anything else on our plates but there is one thing we all need to make time for, fishing.

We are lucky that despite all of the budget cuts in our state, OC Parks, Orange County Supervisor, Janet Nguyen, Dept of Fish and Wildlife and Angler Chronicles have still been able to provide our community with the annual Kids Fishing Derby.  Held at the North Lake at Mile Square Park, it is on March 15, from 9am - Noon.
Kids ages 15 and under fish for free at the Fishing Derby and compete to win multiple prizes for finalists and champions in different age groups. The lake will be stocked with more than 1000 pounds of trout just for the derby. Fishing clinics will be hosted throughout the event.

Registration will take place from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. with the Derby starting promptly at 9 a.m. A limited quantity of fishing rods will be available for loan. A complimentary barbecue lunch will be served to all who attend.

Join OC Parks for a fun filled day of friendly competition and fishing at Mile Square Regional Park.
