Kids’ Fishing Derby on Sunday at Baron Lake

Kids have too many reasons not to attend the annual Kids’ Fishing Derby on Sunday at Tahoe Paradise Park.

Could it be the free derby that awards savings account prizes to the top three anglers?

Could it be the free food and drinks?

How about the free raffle drawing?

Children of all ages are invited to the eighth annual Kids’ Fishing Derby at Baron Lake at Tahoe Paradise Park in Meyers.

Seven hours of fishing, eating and other festivities, which are presented by the South Lake Tahoe Moose Lodge, begins at 7 a.m.

“It’s a big hoot out there, said Paul Hale, who started the event. “Once we get the town back (from the tourist season), this is something for kids in the district to do.”

Loaner fishing poles will be available, as well as bait and tackle.

Registration starts at 7 a.m., a free prize raffle drawing at noon and a weigh-in for the biggest catches is at 2 p.m.

The kid with the largest catch will receive a $100 savings account certificate at El Dorado Savings at the “Y.” Second- and third-place finishers will earn $50 certificates.

Each child will be limited to five fish and 10 per family.

Free food donated by Lira’s Market will be served to the children, and additional kid favorites such as snow cones and cotton candy can be purchased, according to Hale.

Hale revealed that the lake will be stocked with 1,000 pounds of fish, and he said that the young anglers should be excited that some of the additions are large.
