Great Kansas Fishing Derby

Gone Fishin’

The Great Kansas Fishing Derby, is in its second year and administered by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. It is a perfect way to enjoy Kansas’ outdoors, either by yourself or with friends and family! You can fish various bodies of water across the state with hopes of catching a tagged fish! Tags can be recorded and the fish returned to the water, or the fish can be kept, too.

Tagged fish are worth a pretty penny in the form of Kansas Department of Wildlife and Park’s licenses and other cool stuff. An end-of-year drawing will be held and all participants who caught a tagged fish will be entered into a drawing for a lifetime Kansas combination fishing AND hunting license sponsored by the Kansas Wildscape Foundation.

Join us on Giving Tuesday!

Your donation will support programs and projects that ensure all Kansans have access to high-quality outdoor experiences today and tomorrow. All donations raised in Kansas stay in Kansas.
