Fishing Derby Events

Fishing derby 2018 10

Touch Tank

Get up close and personal with turtles, amphibians, and aquatic invertebrates. The touch tank is a great way to explore animals you would see locally.

Fishing Derby

Children age 12 and under will fish for Rainbow trout in the Hatchery’s ponds. Bait will be furnished. Volunteers will clean the fish and bag them with ice for the anglers to take home.
Various displays of fish, fish eggs and the history, flora and fauna of the Missouri river will be on display for visitors.

All events are free. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and bring their own rod and reel. Rods and reels will be available to any child not having one.
For information, call 605-665-3352.
Participants may be photographed at the events and images may be used in official services such as publications, displays, and on the Internet. There will be a photo release form to sign.
