Looking for some fun for the kids?  Look no further! The Sioux Falls Morning Optimist Club will be hosting the annual Fishing Derby June 10th, 2017.  For years the club has hosted this FREE event for the community to enjoy! 

Fishing is open to children ages 12 and under.  Children are divided into age brackets and are awarded trophies in each bracket for largest fish caught and most total weight of fish caught.  In the past, children caught a variety of fish including perch, sunfish, bass, northern, and carp.  We have even had a turtle weigh in!  

The event starts at 8:30 AM and ends at 11:00 AM with lunch served at that time to all participants.  Families are asked to bring a fishing pole, tackle, and a bucket to hold all fish until weigh in.  Bait will be provided by the Sioux Falls Morning Optimist Club and Wal-Mart.  There will also be door prize drawings for the kids.  The 12th Annual Fishing Derby will be held at Covell Lake in Sioux Falls.  

The Sioux Falls Morning Optimist Club is a local service club that has been serving the Sioux Falls community for over 60 years.  The club's motto is "Bringing Out the Best in Kids!"  The club meets every Thursday morning at the VFW on south Minnesota Ave at 7:15 AM.  They are always welcoming new members!
