The Youth Fishing Derby will be held at the Black Warrior Work Center in the Bankhead National Forest on Saturday, June 11, 2011. Youth ages 5 to 12 are invited to attend with a parent or guardian. The pond will be stocked with hungry channel catfish, and there will be other youth oriented activities for the families. Participants will need to bring their own bait and tackle for catfish. This activity is part of the National Get Outdoors Day. A printable flier is available at this link:
