The Georgetown Ranger Station, Georgetown Divide Public Utilities District, the Georgetown Rotary Club and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife will host the 25th annual Kids Fishing Derby on June 7.
All children age 12 and under are invited to bring their fishing poles, bait and tackle boxes to enjoy a fun-filled day at Lake Walton above Georgetown.
In addition to the fishing, there will be a casting contest and fun activities for the kids. The Georgetown Divide Rotary Club will provide free hot dogs and cold sodas for the participants.
Prizes will be awarded in each age category for the “longest fish caught,” “The Casting Contest” and the “first fish caught.”
Lake Walton is located approximately four miles east of Georgetown on Balderston Road, off Wentworth Springs Road. Look for signs directing participants to the event site. Parking is limited so carpooling is advised if possible.
Registration will not be required as it has been in the past. There will be an information board posted at the lake entrance to inform participants of some changes in procedures. Take time to read these prior to fishing in order to increase the chances of taking home a prize.
