Macon Water Authority hosts kids fishing derby Saturday morning

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) –

The Macon Water Authority held its 11th Annual Kids Fishing Derby this weekend.

It was an early morning for kids ages 3 to 16, but they enjoyed the friendly fishing competition on Javors Lucas Lake.
“We just started this fishing tournament where we uhh have kids 3 to 16 in 4 different categories and try to get them involved in fishing” said McCoy.

“We uhh give prizes in each category so its just a way to meet the public and let them know about the Macon water authority.”

The event is held on one of the few days during the year that The Georgia Department of Natural Resources allows fishing on Georgia waters without a permit.

Academy Sports and Georgia power were two sponsors who helped make the free event possible.
