WADDINGTON – Children across the north country will gather their lures and fishing poles for Waddingtons annual childrens fishing derby.
The Waddington Childrens annual Fishing Derby will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at Waddington Beach.
The event is for children 15 and younger and is sponsored by Waddington Fish & Game Club.
The derby has become an annual tradition for the 103-year-old club.
We had a really good turnout last year, and were hoping for a really good day for fishing, club Treasurer Darlene A. Parmeter said Wednesday.
Children and parents are encouraged to bring a bucket to transport the fish for weigh-in. Trophies will be awarded for first through third-place in boys and girls categories.
Its a great way to spend a Sunday, Mrs. Parmeter said. And were hoping for good weather.
Worms will be provided by the club. Free hot dogs and drinks also will be provided.
The rain date will be June 10.
