Location: Latimore Fairgrounds, Special Regulation Section
The contest shall run from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. The sounding of a horn will start and finish the derby.
All fishing rules of the PA Fish and boat Commission will apply. Parents CAN help bait hooks, net fish, remove fish from hooks and untangle lines, but MAY NOT cast and retrieve for the children. Children who catch and KEEP their limit (5) must quit fishing.
Due to number of participants and close quarters, only bait fishing will be allowed. No casting of lures (spinners or artificial lures with multiple hook points) permitted. Contestants should supply their own bait.
No playing or throwing items in the creek.
A prize will be awarded for the LONGEST trout in each age category (one for ages up to 6, one for ages 7 & 8, one for ages 9 & 10, and one for ages 11 & 12. Four total first place prizes.) Ties will be decided by TU judges.
We will also have door prizes and refreshments.
Please note: Children will register in their age group upon arrival at the Derby.
