Anglers aged 1-13 are encouraged to take part in a special day of fishing during the
Buffalo Bill State Park Youth Fishing Derby August 11 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Kids can enjoy a free day of fishing for themselves and their family, free access to the
park and a free fishing pole.

After a day of fishing, prizes will be awarded and food and drinks will be available at the
Sheep Mountain Day Use area at 4 p.m.

There is no cost to enter, however a registration form must be filled out. Forms are
available at the park headquarters, park fee booths, on-line or on the Buffalo Bill State Park
Facebook page. Registration forms can be delivered to the Buffalo Bill State Park fee booths,
mailed in or turned in the day of the derby.

Participants must have parental or guardian supervision during the derby. Boundaries
for the derby are Buffalo Bill Reservoir and surrounding areas.

This is not a competition for size or length, however if a game fish is caught, please put
on ice and enter the free fish mount drawing donated by Canyon Fish Taxidermy during the
afternoon event. You must be present to win.

Sponsors of the Buffalo Bill Youth Fishing Derby are Buffalo Bill State Park, Riverbend
Cabins, Park County Sheriff’s Office, Wyoming Game and Fish, Treasured Memories, Majestic
