The Kids’ Fishing Derby Comes Back this Saturday!
Kids 11 and under invited to fish the Santa Fe River, at the Santa Fe River Park between Don Gaspar and Old Santa Fe Trail
The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and the City of Santa Fe have teamed up once again to sponsor the 2017 Kids’ Fishing Derby this Saturday, June 3! All children 11 years old and younger are welcome from 7:00am to 12:00noon at the Santa Fe River Park from Don Gaspar Avenue upstream to Old Santa Fe Trail. No licenses needed for kids under 11.
As in years past, the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish will stock 500 rainbow trout in the Santa Fe River for the event and have staff there to answer questions about the fishing tradition in New Mexico. There will also be prizes at stake for kids under 11 who make a catch. Older family and friends are welcome to fish after the derby is over at noon, with a license.
The daily bag limit is five trout per day and no more than 10 in possession.
