Many years ago, Ronnie “The Bear” McKibben organized a kid’s fishing derby at Lake Nacimiento. After his passing, the Oak Shores Community has kept his dream alive by continuing to host the annual kid’s fishing derby, now in its 22nd year. This is a great chance for kids to show off their fishing skills and to have an enjoyable day with other kids in the community, or with their families out on their boat.

This Derby is solely funded by vendors and private donations. You may contribute donations for this event, and your name or company will be printed in the Derby booklet.
