Registration for Sheriff’s Office Annual Youth Fishing Derby Opens Soon

Every summer, local kids join dozens of Scott County deputies, police officers, fire fighters and emergency medical personnel in fishing boats for a day of fun and fishing! Kids aged 10 to 15, who live in or attend school in Scott County, will have the opportunity to participate in this free event. Bait, fishing gear, food and beverages are all provided.


The 19th Annual Youth Fishing Derby will be held on Monday, August 5th, 2019 on Cedar Lake in New Prague. The derby will begin at 7:00 a.m. and end with an awards ceremony at approximately 1:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded and all kids will receive participation gifts.


“The Youth Fishing Derby is designed to teach kids to fish, connect them with the outdoors and develop trusting relationships with our deputies and other emergency responders within our community,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “This positive interaction in an informal and relaxed setting gives these kids a better understanding of what we do and who we are.”


Applications will be accepted from July 8th through July 15th, or until all spots are filled. This event is FREE but space is limited to 75 participants and priority will be given to individuals who have not participated in the past. All registrations will be done online. Please visit the Scott County website at www.scottcountymn.gov, where the Fishing Derby registration form can be found under Sheriff’s Office “Community Programs”.


If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Deputy Dennis Tietz at dtietz@co.scott.mn.us or 952-292-8297.
