Kid's Trout Fishing Derby

The Gainesville Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting the 17th annual Kid’s Trout Fishing Derby, Saturday January 29, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Trout fishing outing is for the youth, ages 16 and under. The event will be held in Keneteso Park Pond. The program’s goal is to release catchable size rainbow trout in Keneteso Park Pond and encourage the youth in Gainesville and the surrounding cities to have a chance to experience hands on fishing. The Parks and Recreation Department will have our pond stocked with over 2,500 trout the day before the event to increase the odds of a memorable fishing experience.

This event is absolutely free for the kids and over the years our attendance has increased to over 300 participants.


Come out and enjoy hotdogs, fishing and a fun day with family!!!
