Kids Fishing Derby's

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Dougerus, Jun 10, 2008.

  1. I have been taking my kids to a real fun fishing Derby done by Wayne National Forest at the Leith Run campgrounds on the Ohio river for a few years and thought I would post some info on it. LINK

    Also Someone from my church mentioned many of the State Parks like for instance Burr Oak are having various "hook'ed on Fishing" events this Friday June 13th at 7pm there is one at the marina. I was looking for confirmation of this and found a list of lots of Kid fishing derby's and activities!! Link

    If you know of anymore please share:) !!!
