The 29th Annual STAR/PAL Fishing Derby
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – STAR/PAL, in partnership with the City of San Diego Park and Recreation Department, is holding its 29th Annual Fishing Derby at Chollas Lake for hundreds of underserved youth from surrounding neighborhoods in City Heights and Southeastern San Diego.
Participants will visit a variety of learning stations where they will be taught the fundamentals of lake fishing presented by volunteers from the Department of Fish and Wildlife as well various public safety agencies and community groups.
Law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other community volunteers come out each year to help with this fun-filled event. After enjoying a BBQ lunch, youth participants take home new fishing poles, t-shirts, prizes, and anything they catch that day.
The purpose of this clinic is to familiarize youth with local resources and provide them with the tools and knowledge to safely engage in a positive and healthy activity right in their own backyard, as well as build positive relationships with law enforcement.
