Youth who like to fish have an opportunity to showcase their skills as well as learning some new fishing techniques at the Youth Fishing Derby coming up next weekend. The Washington County Conservation Board is hosting the event which begins with short educational sessions on Iowa fish, water safety, and fishing tackle and tips. Participants will fish until lunch, and they will sample Iowa fish in a light fish fry and door prizes will be given out.
The event is happening at Marr Park next Friday through Sunday. The check-in will be at the Conservation Education Center from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. with activities beginning at 9:00. For more information or to reserve a pole, contact the Washington County Conservation Board.
