The City of Oakley’s Kids Fishing Derby drew a great response on Saturday, August 13th with over 75 children participating this year. Participants joined us at the Antioch/Oakley pier from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM to catch and release fish they caught. Volunteers along the pier assisted with recording the length of each fish and the number of fish for each participant.
