Senoia Optimist Club to host Kids’ Fishing Derby


From Special Reports

The Optimist Club of Senoia will host a free Fishing Derby for Kids on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at Marimac Lakes Park in Senoia.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the derby is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon. The catch-and-release derby is for youth from 5 to 15 years old. At least one parent / legal guardian must be present with each participating child.

Prizes will be awarded for various categories, including the largest fish and the most fish caught. Participants will also receive other items as well. Kids without fishing equipment will be presented with rods and reels. A limited amount of bait will also be available.

Members of the local Optimist Club along with other volunteers will be on hand to register the participants, assist as judges, and to provide first aid if necessary. A free pizza lunch will also be provided.

Marimac Lakes Park in Senoia is located near the intersection of Pylant Street and Georgia Highway 16. The lake is adjacent to the local library. Parking is available at the lake park and at the north end of the library parking lot.
