Kids ages 3-13 years old are invited to a completely free fishing derby on June 29, 2019, from 9am to 1pm, at the 2.5 Acre pond at the Whistlestop Park in Byron Center Township. The first 100 kids will receive a free Zebco Rod and Reel combo to keep. Experienced fishermen and women from the Grand Rapids Steelheaders organization and the West Michigan Walleye Club, will be present to instruct and assist junior anglers bait their hooks, and celebrate their catches. We have EVERYTHING that they may need to fish. Kids are encouraged to bring their own poles. If they do not have a pole, we have plenty for them to borrow.
