Fishing Derby for Kids

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Young anglers lined the shore of the pond at McDade Park in Scranton on Saturday.

The Lackawanna County commissioners hosted the youth fishing derby for the 27th year.

Kids ages 4 - 12 had a chance to compete.

"Fishing is so fun because I get to do my own stuff like cast it out and hook the fish," explained Michael Evans of Falls Township.

There were a few awards up for grabs for largest fish, first caught, and first to catch the five fish limit at the derby in Scranton.

    Why do you guys do news article AFTER the fact? It would be nice to know when these things are going on BEFORE it happens so maybe more could attend?! Like the carnival in Nay Aug Park, no clue it was going on to it was over!
