Fishing derby

Pond Creek National Wildlife Refuge will host a Youth Fishing Derby Saturday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at Little Bell Lake. Little Bell Lake is located along Central Road between the Nobles Mound entrance road and the Tram entrance road.

The Arkansas Game and Fish will provide 300 catchable size channel catfish to provide better opportunity for the fishing derby participants. Little Bell Lake will be closed to the public for fishing from June 6, 2018 until 9 a.m. June 9, 2018.

Only youth less than 16 years of age will be permitted to participate in the event. Children participating in the event must be accompanied and supervised by an adult 18 years of age or older.

The event is free of charge, however all participants are asked to check-in with refuge staff before beginning to fish. All participants are asked to comply with State regulations and fish limits and must bring their own fishing gear. There will be prizes given at the end of the event.

Little Bell Lake will be open to all public with a valid fishing license after the youth event. For further information, please call Pond Creek National Wildlife Refuge Office at 870-289-2126.
