Area kids who are looking for fishing fun are invited to the annual Kids Fishing Derby at Cooper Lake State Park.

The event, open to ages 13 and under, is at the Gulls Bluff Boat Ramp in the South Sulphur Unit on Saturday April 22. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m., hooks go in the water at 9:30 and prizes are awarded at 11:30.

Prizes will be awarded as soon as scale cards are turned in and tallied. There will be some activities before, during, and after the fishing event. The whole family can enjoy learning to cast, learning to tie fishing knots and playing the backyard bass game.

Loaner gear will be available for kids not having their own. It is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. This event may be cancelled due to bad weather. The forecast for Saturday morning predicts a slight chance of rain with gusty north winds.
