New Wilmington will host its annual Junior Fishing Tournament from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Saturday at Westminster College’s Brittain Lake.

Children ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Younger children may be assisted in casting, baiting hooks and landing their fish. They do need to reel in their catch.

Night crawlers will be available for purchase. No minnows or artificial lures will be permitted and children must provide their own fishing pole and equipment.
