For more than 30 years PBV has sponsored a fishing derby for children of the greater D.C. metropolitan area. The goal is to have fun and enjoy the wonderful experience of fishing. Admission to the derby is free and each child that weighs in fish will be given a take-away gift. Angling experience is not necessary as club members will be on hand to help any child who needs assistance.

Live bait will be provided to all derby participants at no charge. Supplies are limited.

All fish caught by the children will be weighed-in at the end of the derby and then released. For kids that have caught fish Trophies and prizes will be awarded for the heaviest creels (weight of total fish caught).
