Westside fishing contest is June 8

HANAPEPE — When the West Kauai Lions Club opens its annual fishing derby for youth on Saturday, June 8, angling will be confined to the banks of the Hanapepe River behind the building on the northwest end of the older Hanapepe Bridge.

“This bridge is also referred to as ‘the 1911 Bridge,’” said Lion Eric Nordmeier. “Actually, the location of the building (and the designated fishing areas) can be seen from the Hanapepe 1911 Bridge.”

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m., with fishing from 9 to noon. Prizes will be awarded.
