LUNKERS LURKING FOR ANGLERS AT DERBY EVENT AT APOLLO PARK SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY.
LANCASTER - Fishing enthusiasts will be flocking to Apollo County Park on Saturday for the annual Spring Classic Adult Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
From 7 to 11 a.m., anglers will be vying for cash prizes for the 10 heaviest trout caught from the Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins lakes in Apollo Park, 4555 W. Ave. G. California Sport Fishing Regulations apply, with a five-fish limit, and only one pole in the water per angler.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on derby day, with registration beginning at 6 a.m.
Participants must be at least 16, and carry a valid fishing license. Winners who are 16 or 17 must be accompanied by a parent to collect prize money.
In the Antelope Valley, tickets can be purchased at B&M Fishing Box, 4527 W. Ave. L, Quartz Hill; George Lane Park, 5520 W. Ave. L-8, Quartz Hill; Karen's Kitchen No. 2, 840 W. Palmdale Blvd.; and Karen's Kitchen No. 3, 235 W. Ave. K, Lancaster.
Tickets are also available in the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys.
Half of all receipts will be awarded in cash prizes, and half will be used to buy trout for the May 3 free kids' fishing derby for ages 5-15. About 1,500 young anglers from Los Angeles, Ventura and Kern counties are expected to participate.
Apollo Park will be closed to the public this week so the lakes can be stocked with fish.
