Derby returns fishing to St. John


April 11, 2019

The Kids Fishing Derby at Heritage Hardware in St. John is back Saturday for its second year after drawing about 150 youths last year in the age-old conflict of man versus nature; nature being trout stocked in pools in the lot next to the store.

“We’re just hoping it doesn’t rain,” said Denny Hinds, co-owner of Heritage Hardware.

This year two pools will be stocked with a total of 250 fish. Fishing poles will be available to youngsters up to 12-years-old with volunteers to help bait, reel-in and clean the catch.

“We really want (the kids) to catch them,” Hinds said.
