What to know
Help your child catch their first fish, a memory that will last a lifetime. Our Family Fun Fishing Derby provides younger and novice anglers an opportunity to experience the fun of our Fishing Derbies in a less competitive atmosphere.
Orchard Lake will be stocked with over 1,000 trout, which means that all participants will have a chance to catch that special fish. The lucky anglers who catch the first trout in their age groups will receive a special trophy. Plus, there are tagged fish which can be caught to win additional trophies and other great prizes.
No fishing experience or fishing license is required. Fishing rods and bait will be available at the fishing site so that even new anglers who don't yet own fishing equipment can participate. Fishermen can take home their first fish, which is included in the price of admission; additional fish are just $4.99 per pound.
