NDOW SPONSORS KIDS CARP DERBY
The entire family can hook a good time at the Kids Carp Derby on June 2 from 8 a.m. to noon at Lahontan Reservoir sponsored by the Nevada Department of Wildlife. Staff and volunteers will be available to teach the little ones how to drop a line. Prizes will be awarded for the largest carp caught by children in different age categories. This clinic is designed for children and is free to all participants.

Saturday, June 2, 2012, 8 a.m. - noon.
WHERE Meeting place will be at beach 1, day use area (Fallon side of Lahontan Reservoir)
SIGN-UPS Registration is required. Register online at ndow.org site address is http://ndow.org/learn/classes/fish/western.shtm For more information call the Department of Wildlife at 688-1559

BRING: Participants are requested to provide their own tackle. A limited number of rods
are available for use by those who do not have their own fishing equipment. Note: A fishing license is required for those 12 years of age and older. NDOW will not be able to sell licenses on site so you will have to pick them up before the event.

Last Year it was a hoot! Every kid that entered hooked into a fish, most more than one. There were a lot of give-a-ways and everyone left having a good time, so stop by the NDOW trailer and say hi.

See you there!!

A Great Time was had by all, everyone caught at least one fish some as many as 10! About 55-60 Kids entered the carp derby and a 7 yo young lady won overall with, I think, a 6lb 4oz common carp. All the kids and most parents left with some prizes and swag. There will be another at Washoe coming up and next weekend is FREE fish day. Sparks Marina will be stocked with trout in a net pen and it's guaranteed to be a fishing frenzy. Some more will be planted at Idlewild park in Reno as well. Check NDOW website for more info. :hi:
