The Fishing Derby Program provides a positive fishing experience for children, senior citizens and physically challenged individuals. The AGFC co-sponsors these events with organizations such as civic clubs, municipalities, other government agencies, churches, schools and nursing homes. Sponsors recruit volunteers and provide a public derby site. The Commission stocks the site with fish and provides technical guidance for the event. For new fishing derby requests, please call 501-676-6963.

The City of Mansfield will host their annual derby on August 3 at the Mansfield City Lake. Two more derbies are scheduled to take place in Sebastian County this year. One on September 21 and the other on October 5. Both will take place at Wells Lake, located at the Janet Huckabee Arkansas River Valley Nature Center.
