It’s a fish off! That’s right, FCEC invites you to the 20th Annual Seal Beach Fishing Derby for kids that will take place this Saturday, August 27th at the local pier in Seal Beach. Registration will take place at the pier between 7:00-9:00am and the derby will begin at 7:30am and run until 12:00pm. Free refreshments will also be provided!
The Rotary Club of Los Alamitos/Seal Beach is coordinating the event and FCEC partner Montrose Settlements Restoration Program (MSRP) is providing funding for fish contamination education to the youth participating in the derby.
The FREE event is open to all youth up to the age of fifteen years old. Bring your favorite rod and reel, loaners and free bait will also be available! The derby is catch and release and qualifying fish will be weighed once they are reeled in.
The youth involved will not only have fun but will leave having had great first-hand experience in fish identification! After the fish are caught, derby participants will use the sign on the pier to determine whether the fish they hooked are safe to eat or qualify for the tournament.
Kids will be given educational materials on fish contamination and reusable bags to take home with them. The young anglers will also be given a photo of them participating in the derby!
So bring out the kids to have some educational fun at the 20th Annual Seal Beach Fishing Derby!
