Prosper families, plan to pack up the crew, pick up some bait, and head to the pond for fishing fun on Saturday, February 19! The pond at Frontier Park is the venue for the 13th annual Proper Fishing Derby, an event where generations of families gather for an informal morning of fishing fun. The Derby culminates with an exciting presentation of prizes for “Most Fish Caught” for kids in categories up to age 14.
The event, presented by Parks and Recreation, is free of charge. Registration is not required.
The Texas Parks & Wild life Department (TPWD) has granted the Town of Prosper an exemption to the fishing license and any stamp requirement for the duration of the Fishing Derby (9:00 am to 11:00 am). A license is not required for those who fish or volunteer for the event. The pond will be stocked in advance by the TPWD, with mostly rainbow trout. The Derby is a catch-and-keep event for trout only, with a limit of five per person.
For more information, about the Prosper Fishing Derby, please send an email to Trevor Helton or call 972-569-1064.
Thank you, PondMedics, Title Sponsor of the event for the 4th year!
