SANTA FE – Children can participate in a free fishing derby in Santa Fe sponsored by the city and the state Game and Fish Department.
Saturday’s event runs from 7 a.m. until noon and is open to children under age 12, who don’t require a fishing license.
There are prizes for the children catching the first 10 tagged fish.
Fishing will be allowed on a section of the Santa Fe River between Don Gaspar Avenue near the state Supreme Court building to Old Santa Fe Trail near the State Land Office building.
The department is stocking the river with 500 rainbow trout.
Anyone 12 or older with a valid fishing license can fish for trout remaining in the river after the derby ends.
