Kids Fishing Derby Menomonee Falls

May 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls will host the 2023 Kids Catch and Release Fishing Derby on Saturday May 13th, 2023 at the Mill Pond in downtown Menomonee Falls.

We have exciting news! Planning has begun for the 2023 Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls Kids Fishing Derby. The derby will take place the morning of Saturday, May 13th at the Mill Pond in downtown Menomonee Falls. The contest is free and is open to all boys and girls age three through 16 that reside or attend school in the Menomonee Falls area. All participants will receive a t-shirt and door prize. Trophies will be awarded to boys and girls in five age divisions for the longest fish and most fish caught during the contest.
Registration for the event will be from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the Mill Pond Shelter. During registration, each child will receive a t-shirt, fish recording log, and a ticket for a door prize. The fishing contest will be from 10:00 AM to Noon. At Noon, participants will want to hand-in their fish recording log to one of many volunteers that will be on site. Trophies will be awarded to contest winners shortly after Noon. Door prizes can be claimed at the registration table anytime between 10:00 AM and Noon.
We anticipate that the Menomonee Falls Neighborhood Watch will be selling food at the pavilion at the Mill Pond & Shelter from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, although we will provide confirmation of this once it is received.
Please bring your own fishing equipment. Only a limited supply of bait will be provided. Children under 11 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Those 16 years old and older must have a fishing license.
Over the years, sponsors and supporters of this event include the Menomonee Falls Police Department, the Menomonee Falls Neighborhood Watch, the Village of Menomonee Falls, RB Enterprises, Fleet Farm, Krueger’s Entertainment Center, Cops and Kids Foundation, Sandy Spring Farm, Kwik Trip, Tru Turn, Menomonee Falls CE & Rec, and the Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls.
If there are any questions, or if you would like to volunteer your time the morning of the derby, please contact Dustin Koehler at 262-370-9529 or Sue Carney at 608-509-3117.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at the Derby!
