This reinforces that whitewater parks are more than a place for kayakers to play.
Kellys Whitewater Park will have a fishing derby this weekend on the North Fork of the Payette River in Cascade. You can get full details at kellyswhitewaterpark.com, but here are the basics. Entry fee is $10 for adults and free for kids 17 and under. Cash and prizes go to the heaviest trout caught during the derby, and registration is required in advance at Tackle Toms on Main Street in Cascade. It sounds like a fun event, and if youre in the area this weekend, stop by and wet a line. If you havent seen the park, you definitely should stop in. Its a great place to visit even if you dont fish or kayak.
And since were on the subject of the North Fork, its often an overlooked place to fish. Access is easy between the bridges in Cascade, but access can be tricky elsewhere.
Nows a good time to search for some of those overlooked places as summer winds down.
