On June 27, 2020, the Van Wert Parks Department will be hosting a children’s fishing tournament for ages 3-13. The tournament will take place at the Smiley Park Pond next to Leeson Avenue from 9am-11am. This tournament will be free to all children (ages 3-13) who wish to fish. We ask that each child bring their own fishing pole, tackle, and bait for the tournament. A parent, grandparent, or legal guardian must be present with the children who are participating. There will be two separate age groups with each group having a champion for the most fish caught and the largest fish caught. Fishing will begin right at 9am, so please arrive early to claim your fishing spot. No registration is required, just show up and join us for some fishing fun! Questions can be directed to the Jubilee Park Office (419) 238-9121.
