Opportunity fishes here! On Saturday, October 9, kids, and teens – fifteen and younger – casted their lines into the San Joaquin River to catch and release striped bass at the 33rd Annual free kids fishing derby! The fishing derby provides the opportunity to teach kids conservation and the basics of fishing competition that may spur an interest in future events. The fishing derby is hosted by the California Striped Bass Association – West Delta Chapter and the City of Antioch and is held every fall.
Join us next year at Waldie Plaza in the beautiful Rivertown district of Antioch. In the meantime, enjoy some images of kids, teens, and families that joined us this year.
