Fishing Highlight of the Week: The 26th annual MacArthur Park Fishing Derby will take place in little rock on Thursday, July 14. The Fishing Derby is open to children ages 6-15 and will take place from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. More than 1,000 children from Central Arkansas are expected to participate. There will be no rods and reels allowed during the Derby. The public is encouraged to bring its own equipment and bait, as only a limited number of cane poles will be available. The AGFC has stocked more than 2,000 pounds of catchable catfish and have tagged some special “prize fish” worth one of the prizes provided by Little Rock Parks Recreation and the AGFC.
