SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
To celebrate San Clemente Day, the city of San Clemente and Fish for Life are hosting the third annual Kids Fishing Derby on the pier at the end of February. Registration is now open for the event, as spots can be reserved at san-clemente.org/recreation.
The derby is open to children between the ages of 6 and 13 and requires advance registration. Check-in begins at 8 a.m.
Fishing poles, bait, and hooks are available for children who need to borrow equipment, while supplies last. Participants are also welcome to bring their own fishing gear.
Each child will receive a medal, T-shirt, and a chance to compete for categories such as biggest fish, most fish, smallest fish, and most unusual fish.
During the derby, which is also supported by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, guests are encouraged to partake in the other family-friendly activities and face painting on the San Clemente Pier.
The derby is scheduled on Feb. 29 from 9 a.m. to noon. For more information, contact the city’s Recreation Division at 949.361.8264 or 949.429.8797, or visit san-clemente.org/recreation.
