HOT SPRINGS, AR--- Children will soon be out of school for the summer and many families are looking for ways to have fun in the sun together.  The Ouachita and Ozark-St. Francis National Forests are co-sponsoring several fishing derbies on Ranger Districts across Arkansas and Oklahoma.

“We work closely with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation to ensure all the derby sites are well-stocked with catfish or trout for the event,” stated Richard Standage, Ouachita National Forest Fisheries Biologist.

 “The derbies are free to the public. Each child must be registered before casting a line.  The registration consists of name, age, address, phone number, and the signature of a parent or guardian,” stated   Keith Whalen, Ozark-St. Francis National Forests Fisheries Biologist.
