The 25th-annual Christopher Youth Fishing Derby is scheduled for this Saturday at Izaak Walton Lake, north of town. Registration gets underway at 8 a.m. and runs through 8:30.

Participants must be 15 years old or younger and must be accompanied by an adult. They must fish from the bank, no boats.

Prizes will be awarded for the "Heaviest Fish," "Sportsmanship" and "Total Number of Fish Caught" in three different age groups.

Fishing poles will be available for use. Due to a limited supply, participants are encouraged to bring their own. Live bait will be provided, but again, participants may bring their own or use artificial bait. Lunch will be served during the weigh-in ceremony.
