21st Annual Children’s Fisherama!
Saturday, May 18, 2019
9:00am to Noon
Registration will take place the day of the event at the Park, it will start at 9:00 a.m. when the Fisherama begins.
This is a free event open to children aged 4 to 15 years. Please bring your own fishing gear & be prepared for any weather.
Participants can expect to catch brook trout and are permitted to keep up to five fish. Prizes are awarded to the children who catch the largest fish. As well, a few tagged trout are put in the pond and any child catching one of these distinctive fish receives a small cash prize. All participants will be eligible for draw prizes.
Refreshments are provided for all participants. This is a fun event and usually attracts about 300 children for a morning of trout fishing
Fisherama Age Limit/Rules
The Children’s Fisherama is for children ages 4 to 15 only. The reason for this is two-fold; they do not require a fishing license as long as they comply with regulations and we do not have to ensure they have the privilege to fish or report it otherwise. We don't ask for ID during registration but hope those attending understand why this rule is in place for the ones participating to make it an event which can be enjoyed by all in attendance.
While we encourage parents to bring their family to our event, we also need everyone to understand that the adults are NOT permitted to fish during the Children’s Fisherama. With young toddlers, it might appear that adults are “helping too much”. For children under the age of 4 who have ability and/or desire to fish, the derby will be in place when they are of age to participate. At that time they will be able to get advice, help and encouragement from parents, guardians and our PCRA volunteers.
