Truman Bakers Kid's Fishing Derby

The threat  of severe weather and storms did not discourage participants during the annual Truman Bakers Kid’s Fishing Derby held on Saturday, May 18.

During the five fish limit, kids between the ages of 3 and 15 were reeling in their catch hoping for placement within one of the prize groups. Prizes were awarded for first through third place for both boys and girls in the age groups of 3-6. 7-11, and 12-15.

Early registration was held May 6th through 16th. The first 100 participants were registered within days of open registration.

Family members accompanied the participants and enjoyed a pre-summer day on the lake. 

Additional coverage, announcements of winners and photos may be found in next week’s edition of The Waldron News.
