Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 27 (rain or shine) from 7:30am – 10:30 am for the Annual Children Fishing Derby 2013 sponsored by the Westford Sportsman’s Club members. The Fishing derby is FREE and open to children 14 and under. Registration starts at 7:30 am at the shed at the edge of the pond. The Derby runs from 8:00 am to 10:30 am. The fishing derby happens at the 2 acre fishing pond the the Club’s property. Children MUST bring their own fishing gear, bait & lures. Each year the pond is stocked with 1000 trout up to 20 “. Free drinks and snacks are provided for the children and adults during the morning.
Prizes are awarded for boys and girls who catch the largest fish; the first fish caught; and the first tagged fish caught. Aside from the fun of fishing… one of the highlights of the morning is the drawings for fishing gear, backpacks and other accessories donated or purchased from funds raised. Each child who attends will go home with a new fishing lure.
