Cops and Bobbers, Hooks and Ladders

Calling all kids under 15 years old! Grab your fishing pole and your tackle box and meet us at Hilltop Lake for a fall youth fishing derby - but let's make it interesting! The Eureka Police Department and Eureka Fire Protection District will be joining the Eureka Parks and Recreation Department for this event and a contest will be held between the two organizations. Team police: wear something blue! Team fire: wear something red! We will be keeping track of first fish, largest fish, most fish and more as points earned for each team. The EHS Fishing Team will also be in attendance to help with baiting, casting and any other questions that may arise.
