Junior anglers can try their luck at the annual Burrell Lake Park Kids' Fishing Derby on June 9.

The free event is open to all children age 15 and younger. Every child registered will get a prize bag and lunch.

Registration will be from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on derby day at the park on Delberta Road in Lower Burrell. All children registering must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Catch-and-release fishing will be from 9 to 11 a.m., with prizes awarded between 11:30 a.m. and noon. Lunch will be available starting around 10:30 to 11 a.m.

The event is sponsored by Tri-County Trout Club, the Lower Burrell Parks Commission and Lower Burrell American Legion Post 868.

Tri-County Trout Club members will measure all fish caught, with the biggest fish by length in each category winning a prize. A grand prize will be awarded for the longest fish overall.

Prizes include fishing rods, tackle boxes and other kinds of fishing gear.

Tri-County Trout Club will provide a limited number of nightcrawlers for bait and a limited number of loaner fishing rods for kids who do not have their own rods. Loaner rods and nightcrawlers will be available first come-first served.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
