This event runs June 21st to July 28th and covers the waters in Wayne County.  This is a great way to spend time with immediate household and family members, besides building lasting memories of having that "FISH ON".  The Youth Derby is designed as three tournaments in one. To enter anglers must be between the ages of 4-16, at the time of registration. Two categories, 4-7 and 8-16.  

New for 2024; sponsored by local Wayne County Businesses will be weekly prizes for the largest fish that week, live scoring and a fishing report section on the website, www.youthderby.com

• AL SHULTZ MEMORIAL CHALLENGE is designed for youth ages 4-7 years of age. Anglers compete to catch the most pan-fish; Blue Gill, Perch, Rock Bass, Sun Fish. And must catch one Smallmouth Bass OR Largemouth. Although the fish do not need to be weighed anglers must complete a registration form at a weigh station.

The entry fee is $5.00. Prizes will consist of merchandise and trophies. The prize structure will be based on the number of registered entrants.
