untitled

On your mark. Get set. Fish! Come to the Youth Fishing Derby from 9 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at Muncy Heritage Park and Nature Trail, 601 Pepper Street. Bring the family to the park and spend the morning fishing and participate in interactive and educational fishing-oriented activities, sponsored by Muncy Historical Society, Trout Unlimited and Lycoming College.

The event was planned in part, with the help of Lycoming College communication students Bethany Adamski, Michael Amaya and Malcolm Bell, in collaboration with Rebecca Holler, education coordinator, of the Pennsylvania Coldwater Habitat Restoration Program, Trout Unlimited, and the Muncy Historical Society.

Children under age 16 are eligible to participate and must be accompanied by a parent. Only one fishing pole per child is allowed. Participants must provide their own fishing equipment. All legal baits are allowed. An artificial lure will be given to each participant, donated by Wertman’s Fish and Bait Shop, 173 W Water St, Muncy. 

Any fish caught with or without a tag are eligible for prizes. Each fish must be measured, and unharmed fish must be then released. Length of fish will determine the prize.

The catch-and-release fishing contest is the star of the show with prizes awarded for 1st place winners in three different age groups. Prizes include three fishing kits with lures, bait, rod and reel: a Shakespeare Bass complete fishing kit; a Shakespeare Walleye complete fishing kit; and a Shakespeare Trout complete tackle kit.

There will be food and drinks available in a picnic atmosphere. 

Registration is free and will be held on the date of the event. This is an all-outside event so dress appropriately. The decision to cancel the day’s activities because of inclement weather conditions will be made by 8 a.m. For more information call (570) 546-5917.
