Something Smells Fishy 

Little anglers may not wrangle enough catches for a fish fry, but they can expect to reel in a few big ones at today's Trout Derby in Akron. For the event — open to kids up to 15 years old — the Ohio Division of Wildlife is going to stock Little Turtle Pond with 1,200 rainbow trout, which can measure up to a foot long apiece. For every tagged fish a child snags out of the water, he'll pocket a dollar bill. And while the agency encourages you to bring your own gear and bait, you can rent a rod and buy a bucket of worms if you forget. Throw out your line from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Firestone Metro Park, 2400 Harrington Road in Akron. Admission is free. Call 330-865-8065 or visit www.summitmetroparks.org.
Sat., April 19, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., 2008
