Preschoolers welcome at Kids’ Fishing Derby

 In Special Events

FishIf you have a preschooler who is looking to try something new, why don’t you introduce them to fishing.  I just happened to read that the 8th Annual Eagle Creek Park Foundation Kids’ Fishing Derby is coming up Saturday June 6th (Rain date – Sunday June 7th) from 8 am to 12 noon at the Eagle Creek Park reservoir waterfowl sanctuary (near the 71st street entrance).  The Catch and Release event is open to children ages 4-14.  Pre-registration is required and is due by 5pm on Monday, June 1. After reviewing the entry form, it appears to be a free event, although there is an admission charged to enter Eagle Creek Park. The entry form asks if you would be bringing your own fishing pole or if you needed one so it sounds like a great place to take a beginner without investing in equipment.  And another bonus… Indiana residents can enjoy fishing June 6 & 7  without purchasing a fishing license.
