The 7th Annual Bakersfield Firefighters’ Trout Fishing Derby will be held this Saturday at the Park at River Walk with firefighters hosting children from the Jamison Children's Center at the event.

The derby will take place from 6 a.m. to noon, presenting "an opportunity for Jamison Center children from around Kern County to experience the joy of fishing while interacting one-on-one with BFD Firefighters," a Bakersfield Fire Department news release said. 

Tickets are $20 each and include a pancake breakfast. There will be 25 tagged trout for various cash prizes, trophies, and a raffle.

The park is located at 11200 Stockdale Highway.

Proceeds benefit the Bakersfield Firefighters’ Relief Association.
