Kids Go for Big Catch in Springdale Fishing Derby


SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — Local kids cast rod and reel in Springdale Tuesday looking to catch some fish at Murphy Park.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission stocked the park pond with 200 channel catfish for kids to catch in the fishing derby.

Judy Costello with the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History said it’s all about convincing kids to be more active.

“It’s fun to get outside,” Costello said. “Once you get outside, hopefully you get hooked, especially if you’re fishing. Not literally, hopefully, but just cause it’s fun to get out.”

The Shiloh Museum hosted the event.

Prizes were awarded for the biggest fish caught.
