The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office will be hosting a free senior citizens fishing derby on Friday, May 1st from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. This is your opportunity to go out and have a great day of fishing.

The fishing derby will take place at the CPSO pond behind the jail on Broad Street in Lake Charles.  Kim Myers with the Sheriff's office says the CPSO will provide help in baiting the lines, removing fish from the hook, if requested, and bait shrimp for catching catfish.

Refreshments will be furnished.  All senior citizens in the parish are invited at no charge.
