2014 Northeast Ohio Youth Fishing Derbies

Kids Fishing Derbies Northeast Ohio

There are quite a few fishing derbies taking place across Northeast Ohio during the spring and summer months.  The events give children the opportunity to learn how to fish and join in a friendly competition for a chance to win prizes.

So dust off your rods and reels, grab a bucket of bait and head out to one of these events.  Note that many require preregistration.

If you know of any other fishing events for kids, please email us or leave a comment below and we’ll add it to the list.

      Hey David,

      Most of the events in the list are during the month of May. Were you looking for a specific county in NE Ohio that isn’t listed?

      Brenda,

      The first two events on the list are this Saturday. One in Medina County and one in Stark County. Hope that helps!

      Take Care,

      Danielle
