LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - If you live in Little Rock, 1 of your kids could bring home a fish for dinner.
The pond at MacArthur Park was stocked Wednesday with 2,000 fish from the state Game and Fish Commission, and the 24th Annual Fishing starts at 9:30 Thursday morning.
The event is aimed at children 15 and younger, and various prizes will be awarded.
The fish even get a sporting chance. The rules of the fishing derby bar the use of store-bought rods and reels, allowing the kids to fish only with lines attached to bamboo poles.
