“Get Hooked on Fishing, Not Drugs” 

Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler on Thursday, March 3, 2022, announced the launch of the second District Attorney’s Office Youth Fishing Derby. The Derby will run from April 1, 2022 through September 5, 2022 and is open to children between the ages of five and eighteen who are children or grandchildren of Orange County residents. 

Fishing teaches many life lessons, such as patience and how to deal with success and failure. Several U.S. presidents were accomplished fishermen and used fishing to relax from the stress and responsibilities of their office. Participants will also learn to enjoy and respect nature and, by spending more time with family and friends, will alleviate some of the boredom and anxiety caused by the COVID-19 crisis. It is that boredom and anxiety that has led so many of our young people to turn to drug use or gang activity. Sports and other worthwhile activities can help deter young people from those bad choices. The Derby will encourage our young people to go fishing and enjoy the outdoors and hopefully avoid drug use.
