Rohnert Park Fishing Derby

Note: The Fishing Derby is organized by volunteers and supported by generous businesses and individuals in the area.


The 26th annual 2009 Rohnert Park Fishing Derby

While enjoying world famous snow cones, popcorn, hot chocolate and hot dogs, we still managed to catch 133 fish at the 26th annual Rohnert Park Fishing Derby. This was the second most fish caught in a single derby. Not bad, as we averaged just under a fish a minute and at times we had a line to weigh-in fish.

The biggest fish was caught by Kelsey Weise at 2.14 lbs. Kelsey was our Artist of the Year in 2007. This years Artist of the Year was Garrett Lusk, who's winning drawing was on all the T-shirts that were handed out to the kids that registered.

Because of our great sponsors, we had over 250 fishing poles that were handed out as prizes this year. I think every child took home a fishing pole.

I want to thank all my volunteers that helped at the fishing derby. You all help put smiles on many kids faces.

Hope to see everyone next year on May 22nd, 2010 at the 27th annual Rohnert Park Fishing Derby. Here are photo's from this years derby!
