It's not about the size of the fish, it's about the size of the fun!

The annual fishing derby is a two day event with fun for all ages. There is no better family fun than sitting by the ponds on a warm Spring day waiting for a trout to bite. 

No experience is necessary. This is not a fishing derby in the sense that everyone is a pro fisherman trying to catch the big prize. Rather, this is a derby where everyone from little children to senior citizens can enjoy fishing and learn how to fish. Volunteers are on hand to show new anglers how to tie a hook on the line, to help you bait it, and to take a fish off the line for you. For many children (and adults) this is their first exposure to fishing and lets face it, unlike fishing in the wild, we stack the odds in favor of everyone catching a fish. 

These are private ponds so a fishing license is not required, bait is available at a very reasonable cost, and even a limited number of rods are available for free if needed.

The kitchen is open during the event for breakfast and lunch. We've become known as the best place in town to eat because of the large quantities of excellent food at reasonable prices!
