DERBY >> The Derby Elks are inviting area children to hook, line and sink ‘em during its upcoming annual fishing rodeo.
The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon May 9 at Osborndale State Park, located off Chatfield Street, across from the entrance to Derby High School and Derby Middle School.

Children ages one to 14 from the Naugatuck Valley are welcome to participate in this free event. Participants need to bring their own fishing poles, reels and bait.
Members of the Derby Elks Lodge 571 will be stocking Pickett’s Pond with additional fish. Trophies for first, second and third place will be awarded in three age-groups for the biggest fish caught. The winners will also receive a fishing rod and reel.
