FD Poster 2023

The City of Wyandotte has a strong commitment to area youth as did Skip Clack, former Mayor of the City of Wyandotte and dedicated volunteer for many programs and organizations. Mr. Clack was a judge for the fishing derby for many years, talking to children and their families and always willing to dedicate countless hours to our wonderful city. For these and many more wonderful reasons, the Annual Wyandotte Fishing Derby will now be named Skip’s Fishing Derby.

The Annual Derby is scheduled for June 3 this year.  This popular event typically draws over 200 participants for the derby, ranging from 5-13 years of age.  Prizes and trophies are awarded for several categories, including longest fish, smallest fish, most fish caught, and most unusual item caught. In addition, every child receives a gift bag with miscellaneous coupons and gift certificates from local merchants including such things as movie passes and recreational and fast food coupons.

We are pleased to honor Skips and continue this exciting event, which is available free to all children to enjoy a fun experience at Wyandotte’s waterfront jewel – Bishop Park.
