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.
