Wenatchee Valley College Student Senate will sponsor the annual Fountain Fishing Derby on the Wenatchee campus on Wednesday, May 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The derby is free for students and $2 to rent a pole and fish for WVC employees and members of the public. 

Hundreds of one- to three-pound trout will fill the campus fountain, along with some four-pound lunkers. A GoPro camera will be awarded as a prize for the biggest fish caught.

There will be a gutting and cleaning station, and ice available to keep the fish fresh until fishers are ready to take them home.  There will also be an informational table on sustainability and eating local, as well as tacos, drinks and ice cream available.

Daily parking passes on the Wenatchee campus cost $2. Parking permit machines are available in the Wells Hall/Music and Art Center, Smith Gym, Brown Library and Sexton Hall lots. Students must have valid WVC parking permits.
