FREE – Families are encouraged to bring their young anglers (ages 4-14) to catch stocked trout and other fish at Clearbrook Park on Friday evening, May 7th from 5:30-8 pm. This is a rain or shine event with no registration required, but a RSVP is helpful for us to inform you of event updates and future fishing adventures.

Participants must bring their own fishing pole, bait, tackle and gear to reel in that big one. Awards and door prizes are in the works to make for the best fishing experience this year! The Youth Trout Derby will create memories for families that will last forever!
