Rohnert Park Fishing Derby has completed!
Rohnert Park Fishing Derby was a popular event Saturday,
May 20th. The weather was nice enough
to shine on the fishing derby and shore space wasn’t a
problem this year, as we had two fishing derbies to
accommodate more kids. This year was a record year for
fish caught with a total of 168 fish, which is double
the amount from last year. The 1st derby had
115 fish caught in two hours, making it almost a fish a
minute. The second derby, which had about a third the
number of kids, pulled in 55 fish in two hours.
kids also enjoyed the free donuts, coffee, hot
chocolate, snow cones, hot dogs, and a lake stocked with
about 1100 trout. Approximately 400 kids attended,
and the biggest fish, weighing 1.95 pounds, was caught
by James Aders.
Thanks to generous donations, over 300
prizes were distributed, including: fishing equipment
and Rohnert Park Fishing Derby t-shirt, featuring
artwork by Artist-of-the-Year Justin Zinnerman.
