Residents can now register their little ones for the 2014 Youth Fishing Derby.

The city of Alpharetta's Recreation and Parks Department will host the event for children ages 4 to 12 on Saturday, June 7.

The derby will take place at the lake at the Brookside Office Park at 3625 Old Milton Parkway. Participant check-in starts on site at 7:45 a.m. and the derby will run between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. 

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the event for the most fish caught and the longest fish. Children must be present to win a prize. Adults must also accompany children to the event. 

Contestants must also provide their own fishing gear and bait, and are encouraged to bring chairs, sunscreen, bug spray and water.  This is a catch and release program, and the pond will be stocked with catfish.

Or, you can register in person at any recreation facility in the city. There will be no on-site registration the day of the fishing derby.
