City of Waldron Hosts Annual Fishing Derby


The City of Waldron recently held its annual kid’s fishing derby. Although it takes a great deal of effort from those involved, the payoff was big. The smiles, often toothless, were extremely rewarding.

Prizes, t-shirts, food and fellowship rounded out the day, making it a perfect event for families.

Eralynn Falconer

The biggest fish, caught by Eralynn Falconer, weighed in at 4.95 lbs. A great size catfish! Way to go Eralynn!

Kirsten Hall

The grand prize winner was Kirsten Hall. She had a weigh in of 9.15 lbs of catfish!

Sponsors of this year’s Truman Baker Fishing Derby were: City of Waldron, MCE, Poteau River Conservation District, Tyson, WeighTech, AmeriChemm LLC., Sonic, Harps, True Value Scott County Hardware, Chambers Bank, and ABC Printing.
