Mark your calendars for the 2013 Family Fishing Derby at Branch Memorial Pond. The event will be held on Aug. 31 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Team Edwards’s family members ages 2 and up are welcome to participate. All participants 16 years and older must have a valid base fishing license from Outdoor Recreation. California state fishing licenses are not required. Participants under the age of 16 must be with a sponsor who has a valid base fishing license. Base fishing licenses can be purchased at Outdoor Recreation for $15 and fishing equipment rentals are also available.

There will be four age categories and prizes will be awarded to the three largest catches in each. This is a catch and release derby, each angler is limited to one fishing pole, boats/float tubes/waders will not be permitted, and everyone should bring their own bait.
