Free family fishing derby to be held Saturday at Mariposa State Park

Jasper Conservation Connection and the Jasper County Conservation Board will be partnering to host the seventh annual Hook, Line and Sinker family fishing derby at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 7, at Mariposa State Park. 

The fishing derby is free for all ages, and it is free fishing weekend, so a fishing license is not required.  

The event will include educational presentations on fish ID, casting, preparing fish, lure making and minnow races. Participants will have the afternoon to go fishing and door prizes will be given out. The first 100 kids to register will receive a free T-shirt.  

For more information, call (641) 792-9780 or stop by the Jasper County Armory/Annex Building at 1030 W. Second St. S. in Newton.
