Event Info:
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, You Fish!

The 2012 Hy-Vee Fishing Derby is a fun, FREE event held annually at Water Works Park in Des Moines, IA. This year's event will be hosted on Saturday, May 19 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

The Derby gives children up to 15 years of age the chance to fish and win great prizes-no fishing license required! You'll see a lot of fish but you'll see even more smiles.

If you aren't interested in fishing, that's okay- we need nearly 150 volunteers to help the day of the Derby- with parking, park cleanup, handing out t-shirts and helping kids with bait.

Your participation or financial contribution through this event helps to make our programs possible. Thank you for your support!
