The Goodyear Hunting & Fishing Club will host a Trout Derby next month for children and adults with special needs. On May 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., families and individuals can join the fun at wheelchair-accessible Little Turtle Pond at Firestone Metro Park, 2400 Harrington Road, Akron.

Only special needs children and special needs adults may fish during the event. Adults and guardians must supervise and can assist, but may not fish. Trophies will be awarded to kids 15 and under for the three largest fish caught.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing equipment and bait. Some equipment and bait will be provided, and minnows are not permitted. Free hot dogs, chips and beverages will be served.
