Georgetown Parks and Recreation will host a virtual Youth Fishing Derby Jan. 16-31 at Blue Hole Park, 100 Blue Hole Park.
Admission into the derby is free and open to youth age 12 and younger. A fishing permit is required for anglers age 17 and older. All participants must register in advance to be eligible for the prize drawing.
Blue Hole Park will be stocked with 1,500 rainbow trout prior to the event. Unlike previous years, participants will fish on their own time and submit photos to be eligible for prizes. Prizes will be drawn at random for those who submit a photo of their trout catch. More information about the process is available on the website and instructions on how to submit photos will be sent with the registration confirmation.
Due to rising COVID-19 case numbers in Williamson County, participants should maintain physical distancing of at least six feet from others not in their household. When not able to physically distance, face masks or coverings are encouraged. Good hand hygiene is also encouraged. Find out more at bit.ly/COVID19GTX.
