Buffalo Bill Youth Fishing Derby set for Saturday

Posted

Local children are invited to find a pole and register for the Buffalo Bill Youth Fishing Derby, which is being held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Kids ages 1 to 13 can participate in the free event; parental or guardian supervision is required. Registration forms are available at the fee booth, on Facebook, and the Buffalo Bill State Park office until the day of the derby. Registration provides free entry into the park. 

Fishing begins at 8 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m., when the anglers and their parents are invited to stop by the Sheep Mountain Day Use area to tell staff about their day of fishing and to submit any catches for a drawing for a free fish mount. The drawing winner will be announced at 5 p.m. Registration forms will be used for other prize giveaways.

The fish mount drawing from Canyon Fish Taxidermy will be held for game fish only.

“Do not gut, please place fish on ice to enter the drawing,” advised organizers.

The event boundaries for the derby are the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and surrounding areas. 

“This event is not a competition for length or numbers; fun only,” organizers advised.

Other sponsors of the event are Pepsi of Powell, Y-Tex, Whitlock Motors, Big Horn Food Services, Bomgaars, Dairy Queen, Park County Library, Big Horn Basin Boat Club, Park County Search and Rescue, Treasured Memories, Park County Sheriff’s Office, Shoshone Back Country Horsemen, Majestic Lube — Cody, Wyoming Women on the Fly and Pawnee Irrigation.
