The threat of rainy weather has washed away plans for the annual Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs fishing derby in Iola Saturday.

The Iola Police Department-sponsored event was called off because of Saturday’s forecasts.

“Unfortunately, the weather forecasts are calling for 50% to 60% chances of storms all through the time they’d be fishing,” Iola’s Community Resource Officer Danny Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez said the event would be rescheduled.
