On Saturday, June 29, all kids are invited to bring their fishing pole and bait to Leclaire Lake Park for the Leclaire Lake Fishing Derby. This derby is designed for youth up to 15 years old, accompanied by an adult. Our generous sponsors: Walgreens and Sonic have made it possible for the Parks Department to provide prizes for those participants who catch the biggest fish and the most fish. Prizes this year will be trophies donated by BJs Printables.
Registration for the Leclaire Lake Fishing Derby begins at 9:30 a.m. by the gazebo. From 10:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. a representative from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will start the day off right with a presentation on fishing safety along with some great tips on how to catch “The Big One.” Then it’s on to the fishing! Participants have an hour and a half to catch as many fish as they can and once the air horn blows at 11:45 a.m. the fish will be counted and prizes given out.
