JOLON — The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) at Fort Hunter Liggett will be hosting the 20th Annual Youth Fishing Derby on Saturday, April 30.

The event will take place at the Del Venturi Reservoir at Fort Hunter Liggett, from 6:30 a.m. to noon. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of age groups 6 and under, 7 to 11 and 12 to 15. 

Food will be available for purchase, and participants will be able to continue fishing for the remainder of the day at Del Venturi without having to purchase a Fort Hunter Liggett fishing permit. Participants, however, will still need to possess a valid California fishing license.

In addition, FMWR at Fort Hunter Liggett will host the Coyote Spring Fest from noon to 4 p.m., at the intersection of Jolon and Mission roads. The event will feature a flea market, produce market, various food vendors and bounce houses for children. 

Attendance is free for the event. The space fee for sellers is $10 for individuals and $20 for businesses.
