Flood waters on Upper Wabash reservoirs have receded, clearing the way for four kids fishing derbies on June 1.

The free derbies are for kids ages 2 to 14 accompanied by adults. They are at Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes, J. E. Roush Fish & Wildlife Area and Ouabache State Park.

Each participant must use bait provided by DNR. Age categories are 2 to 5; 6 to 10; and 11 to 14. Prizes will be awarded for first-, second- and third-largest fish caught in each age group. There will be a grand-prize winner for largest fish overall.

Sign-in begins at 8:30 a.m. with rules and regulations given then. Fishing will be 9 to 10:30 a.m. Awards will be given after 10:30 a.m., and children and their adult must be present to win.

The event coincides with Free Fishing Weekend, when Indiana’s adult residents do not need a license to fish but all other general fishing regulations apply.

Advance registration is requested by calling Upper Wabash Interpretive Services at (260) 468-2127.
