The event is free of charge and open to children fifteen years and under.

Those attending should be sure to bring their own fishing gear, bait, life jacket, sunscreen, and any other items that they may anticipate needing.

The 25th annual derby will be held on May 11th, and takes place at the Calhoun Falls Bank Fishing Area, located on Highway 72 about a mile west of Calhoun Falls.

The derby begins at 8:00am and will last until 1:00pm.
