Joe Foss American Legion to Host 6th Annual Youth Fishing Derby


On March 25th from 9am-1pm, this free event will be open to the first 100 registrants in three age categories: 8 and under, 9-13, and 13 to 17. Medals will be awarded to boys or girls who catch the largest fish (based on weight) before being returned to the water. Each registrant will receive a free hot dog, chips, and drinks. Adults will be able to purchase hot dogs, chips, and drinks from the Joe Foss American Legion Riders.

Kids are encouraged to bring their own fishing poles, but the group will have some poles on hand for use. Bait will be extremely limited, so each contestant is also encouraged to bring his/her own bait (treble hooks are not allowed on lures).

The Joe Foss American Legion Post 97, originally known as San Tan Valley Post 97, was founded in June 2009. Our mission is to serve local veterans with support services and the region's youth with activities like fishing.
Co-sponsors of this event include the Johnson Ranch Community Association, American Legion Riders, and Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Venture Crew 2222.

Sponsorships are available (and welcomed!), and volunteers are needed on March 25 in areas including registration check-in, set-up and tear-down, fishing gear distribution, and sharing "fishing wisdom" with the young anglers.
