The Osage Beach Fishing Derby will be held on October 5, 2019 from 9AM-NOON. Come out to this completely free event to enjoy the morning fishing with family, chance to win prizes, and a hot dog lunch!
The Fishing Derby will be held at the newly opened Osage Beach City Park fishing pond. The City Park fishing pond reopened to the public on June 1, 2019 after being closed since the summer of 2013 due to flood damage. There have been many repairs and additions including an emergency spillway, new flood gate, and in-house dredging -- all completed in spring of 2016. The pond was restocked with catfish and bluegill in fall of 2016 and largemouth bass in summer of 2017. Fishing was not permitted during this time to allow the fish to grow and spawn, all with direction from Missouri Department of Conservation.
