2016 Fishing Derby

The 2016 Take Me Fishin' family fishing derby took place on September 24th. The water was too warm for trout to be stocked but more than 50 fish were caught during the day.

2015 Fishing Derby

9th Annual Fishing Derby

fishing derby signThe Friends' Take Me Fishin' event took place at Fearing Pond on September 27th. Approximately 350 participants took part. Thanks to all our sponsors for providing great prizes to the winning entrants and to all our volunteers who helped the event run smoothly

It was a very fun event in partnership with the DCR and Mass Fish and Wildlife. Mass Wildlife stocked the pond with trout several days ahead of time for this event but trout remained difficult to catch. Mass Wildlife also supplied more than 100 fishing poles for anyone to use. Morrison's supplied boxes of worm. Generous prizes from Cabelas, Captain John's and other sponsors were awarded in four categories this year- bass, trout, sunfish and perch.
