San Angelo’s Hooked On Fishing Derby!
The City of San Angelo’s Parks & Recreation Department hopes to reel in novice and avid anglers alike at its annual Hooked on Fishing derby the morning of Saturday, June 7, along the Concho River downtown.
The free event will be from 7:30 a.m., when registration begins at Celebration Bridge, until noon. Fishing competitions for the biggest fish in terms of length and for the most fish will be conducted in three age groups: 7 and younger, 8-12 and 13-17. Awards will be presented to the winners. Anglers should bring their own fishing poles and bait. No fishing license is required.
The first 100 participants will get free hot dogs. Concessions will also be available for purchase.
The fishing derby is co-sponsored by Field & Streams Sporting Goods and the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.
