The Benton Police Department, in conjunction with the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission and Golden ‘K’ Kiwanis, have rescheduled the FREE fishing derby that was cancelled due to inclement weather.  The “Hooked on Fishing” fishing derby will now be held on June 23rd, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Sunset Lake in Benton. 
The fishing derby is open to all children, ages 12 and under, and registration is free.  This is a program that we have done for many years where officers come out to help teach children the basics of fishing and reward them with prizes in various categories.  
The Game & Fish Commission will be providing 2 truckloads of fish prior to the start of the event and there will be prizes for various categories.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing pole with them to the event.  
Please mark your calendar and make plans to attend this great event.  For more information on the event please contact Lt. Mike Connell with the Benton Police Department at 501-776-5948 for more details.
