The date is set and the pond will be stocked; mark your calendars for June 8 for the annual University Park Children’s Fishing Derby. The fun runs from 9 a.m. to noon at Caruth Park.
The name of the game is catch and release, because we’re all animal lovers here. Don’t forget to bring your own pole and bait. If you catch the smallest or the largest fish, you’ll get a prize. If your luck gets you medium-sized fish, don’t be sad. There’s still door prizes to be won.
You can register at the event, or you can register ahead of time with the Parks Department at 214-987-5488. Happy fishing!
