Looking for a way to spend some quality time with your kids?   Take them fishing...   At the end of the day, the kid will remember the fish.  At the end of a lifetime, they will remember the person who took them!


 Welcome to the Rohnert Park Fishing Derby web page.

                    30th Annual Rohnert Park Fishing Derby

It was a great morning at Roberts Lake and with a record turn out, but we only caught 45 fish. This is why they call it fishing and not catching. The Active 20/30 club were working hard, as they handed out well over 400 snow cones. I think it could be snowing at 6am and kids still would have a snow cone. Some times its not about the fishing, but the snow cone.

The biggest fish was 1.5 lbs, which was caught by Preston Jackon. The Artist of the Year who's great drawing was on each t-shirt, was Michael Sittenauer. Mark Pippen feed everyone with a Free hot dog lunch at the end.

We came back later that day and Sunday and caught 4 fish, as there are still a lot of fish in that lake. Thanks for all who help volunteered at the derby. We look forward seeing everyone at next years fishing derby which will be held  Saturday May 17th, 2014.

I know it gets very crowded around the lake and I have tried many times to get the golf course to let us use their side of Roberts lake, but they won't let us. Any ideas how to get that side of the lake let me know?

Until next fishing derby, Happy Fishing : )
