Annual Fishing Derby is Saturday at 9 in Salisbury City Park

The pond at the Salisbury City Park will be packed with fish for children to catch this Saturday during Wicomico Recreation’s annual Youth Fishing Derby.

This year’s Fishing Derby, a free event, begins with registration at 8 a.m.; fishing will be held from 9 to 11 a.m.

Food and drinks will be provided for youth participants after that, and there will also be trophies awarded. Among the categories children can compete in are Most Fish Caught, Most Unusual Catch and Biggest Fish.

The Fishing Derby is for boys and girls ages 15 and younger, and participants should bring their own bait and rods. The Department of Natural Resources will be adding about 500 blue gills to the pond’s catfish, largemouth bass, perch and carp.
