There will be no Father's Day Fishing Derby and Kid's Learn To Fish weekend this year. The popular derby was cancelled Wednesday, as a result of restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
This would have been the ninth year of the derby. Organizers thanked sponsors in a post on the Backcountry Facebook page and encourage people to set their sights on the 10th year of the event in 2021.
"Although we cannot do these events this year, I want to encourage you to get outside and fish our lakes and rivers this summer," said organizer Tammi Miller.
