Virtual Children’s Fishing Derby @ Cleveland Metroparks

May 10 - May 16

Cleveland Metroparks Virtual Children’s Fishing Derby – Spring 2021
May 7 – May 16, 2021
To encourage children and families to enjoy a day of fishing in Cleveland Metroparks this spring, Cleveland Metroparks is hosting a Virtual Children’s Fishing Derby.
The derby is open to children ages 15 years and younger. To enter, your child must go fishing with their family anywhere in Cleveland Metroparks between May 7th and May 16th.
Wallace Lake in Berea and Ohio and Erie Canal Fishing Area will be stocked with rainbow trout and channel catfish just prior to the start of the virtual derby. Additionally, many other ponds, lakes or streams in Cleveland Metroparks offer great opportunities for an enjoyable family fishing outing.
To Enter:
No purchase necessary to enter.  Take a photo from your outing and email it to us between 6 a.m. on May 7th and 11:59 p.m. on May 16th.  Only a child’s parent or legal guardian may email the picture of their child. This may be a picture of a child with a fish, your child fishing, or just a nice photo from your family outing.
You will need to digitally sign a photo release on behalf of yourself and your child. Your photo may be posted on the Cleveland Metroparks Fishing Report the week following the virtual derby.
All children, whether they catch a fish or not, will be entered in a drawing for a Cleveland Metroparks gift card provided you have submitted a photograph.   (Cleveland Metroparks employees, board members and/or their immediate family members are not eligible to enter.)
You may send as many photos as you like, but each child will be entered only once for the drawing.  By entering any sweepstakes, you (on behalf of your child) agree to waive any and all claims against Cleveland Metroparks for personal injury, damage or loss of any kind which may result from participation in the Fishing Derby or from the receipt, enjoyment, ownership or use of any prize.
If your child is a winner, we will contact you by email to get your mailing address.
Email entries to: Please provide the name of who to contact and the first name of each child.
To sign the photo release: Go to, click on the latest posting, and click on the Smart Waiver link near the bottom of the page. It is quick and easy!
Note: People ages 16 years and older require a valid Ohio Fishing License to fish in Cleveland Metroparks waters. See the Ohio Fishing Regulations for exceptions.
