The Kids Fishing Derby held annually on the Fourth of July weekend is a chance for kids ages 3 to 14 to enjoy catching some fish and have a chance to win some great prizes. 

Jointly sponsored by the Fairfield Glade Bass Club and the Fairfield Glade Recreation Department, the fishing derby will return July 6 to Mirror Lake in Fairfield Glade, which is just off Peavine Rd. across from the Fairfield Glade Fire Department building. The event will be held from 8 to 10 a.m.

Bring your own fishing gear. Bait will be provided.

Prizes will be awarded in boys and girls categories. Bass Club volunteers will be on hand to measure and record catches. There is also a casting contest, which is for accuracy in casting to a target, by age group.
