About the event

Normally during this time, we are doing our Urban Kids Fishing Derby across the country. We have had calls, emails, and text to see if and when we will be having these community events, but we are living in a time of COVID 19 and we would never jeopardize the safety of our families. So the September 26th derby scheduled at the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area has been postponed and we will keep you updated as we go. The pandemic is still present so we will continue to follow the CDC guidelines and try to adjust to this new world. We will set up a free membership page for families to sign up, so we can let you know when we will have our next event, clinic, small group training or prize give away.

Urban American Outdoors is excited to host our Urban Kids Fishing Derby in Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, September 26, 2020 (POSTPONED).

Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the event is from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area and it’s FREE. There will be a $100 grand prize. Follow us on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/urbankidsfish
