There is nothing more exciting for some children than feeling that little tug and big yank on their fishing line as a fish takes their delicious bait and finds himself hooked.

Saturday (Sept 8) from 7 am until 10 am at the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Farm Pond at 5400 E Broad St (behind the parish jail), kids under 15 can fish for free. Just bring your own gear and bait, lawn chairs and a cooler to bring the fish home.

Youth groups are welcome, for more information call the SO at 337-491-3667, Kim Meyers can answer any stray questions you may have for bringing your own kids or heading up a group.

The Annual Youth Fishing Derby is presented by the CPSO Youth/D.A.R.E. Division.
