Lake Shelbyville Kids Fishing Tournament

Thu, May 17, 2018

Opossum Pond is located near the entrance to the Opossum Creek Recreation Area. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by calling 217-774-3951 ext. 2, though it is not mandatory.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. for the age 6 and under category, and participants will fish from 9:00 to 9:45 a.m. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. for the age 7-9 and 10-12 category, and participants will fish from 10:00 a.m. to11:00 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for biggest fish, smallest fish, and most fish in each age division. All children will receive a certificate for participating. The tournament will be limited to bank fishing only. All participants are required to bring and wear a life jacket. Fishing equipment (including tackle and bait) is not provided, and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Volunteers are needed to assist with baiting, weighing, measuring, helping kids, and recording tournament information. The supplies for all volunteer activities will be provided, but if you have supplies that you would like to bring and use during the event, please do so. All volunteers will receive one free night of camping at Lake Shelbyville at a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Campground and lunch with the event participants.

Illinois Free Fishing Days are June 15th - June 18th. Fishing is a sport enjoyed by all ages and is recognized as one of the most peaceful of all recreational opportunities. Illinois’ Free Fishing Days provide families and individuals an opportunity to try recreational fishing without the commitment of purchasing a fishing license. Fishing is a great way to spend time with your family in the great outdoors.

Get your rods and reels ready to go, bring the kids, and watch them enjoy a free fun morning of fishing at Lake Shelbyville. If you would like further information, to pre-register, or to volunteer call the Lake Shelbyville Interpretive Services and Outreach Department at (217) 774-3951 ext. 2.
