ARE Fishing Derbies
Aquatic Resources Education (ARE)

The Fishing Derby Program provides a positive fishing experience for children, senior citizens and physically challenged individuals. The AGFC co-sponsors these events with organizations such as civic clubs, municipalities, other government agencies, churches, schools and nursing homes. Sponsors recruit volunteers and provide a public derby site. The Commission stocks the site with fish and provides technical guidance for the event. For new fishing derby requests, please call 501-676-6963.
