Children’s Fishing Derby to be a ‘Reel’ Good Time

July 26, 2022

The Deer Creek Children’s Fishing Derby is back—catch plenty of fishing fun on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2022!

The Deer Creek Children’s Fishing Derby will be held at Deer Creek Conservation Area on Saturday, August 13, from 8 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Open to youth ages 16 and under, the derby is a great way for kids and their families to form fond memories and acquire a love of fishing. Cast from shore or launch a non-motorized or electric boat and fish the farther sections of the reservoir.

The cost to participate is $5 per child, plus admission to the Conservation Area. Space is limited, so an online pre-registration system has been made available. Visit to secure your spot. On the day of the event, walk-ins will be accepted until capacity is reached.

The event is hosted by Long Point Region Conservation Authority and sponsored by organizations including the Police Association of Ontario and the Norfolk County OPP Detachment. A huge thank you goes to the many local businesses who support the Deer Creek Children’s Fishing Derby; the derby would not be possible without their contributions.

The Deer Creek Children’s Fishing Derby is part of Bob Izumi’s Kids and Cops Fishing Days. To learn more about Kids and Cops Fishing Days, please visit,, or contact Jessica at or 877-822-8881.
