This event will include the annual kids fishing derby as well as a variety of contests, programs, and tours. There will be prizes awarded for some activities. This weekend event is sure to bring the fun of Daisy State Park’s natural resources to your family. This family-fun filled event is completely free and plenty of prizes will be handed out for several events. There will be a prize for the biggest fish, smallest fish, and the first fish caught in the fishing derby. Parents can help if they want, however,  children (ages 15 and younger) must do the fishing themselves. Bring your own bait and tackle and get ready for a great time.

And if you are experienced at kayaking, or always wanted to learn how to kayak, take a beginner's course on the sport.  Enjoy Daisy State Park's kayaking challenge while you're there. Test your skills as you paddle through the fun obstacle course on Lake Greeson. Dress appropriately though as you'll likely get wet!

About Lake Greeson

Located in the foothills of the Quachita Mountains, Lake Greeson is surrounded by the Little Missouri River and Daisy State Park, which makes for a perfect combination for fishing, camping, hiking, swimming or just relaxing with the family. Lake Greeson boasts 7,000 acres of clear water and mountain scenery for that perfect outing. Black and white bass, stripers, crappie, catfish, and bluegill account for the lake's popularity with anglers.

The Little Missouri and four other float streams in the area offer spring and early summer trout fishing.
