Drum and Henry Kids Fishing Derby June 4th 2023
The Drum and Henry Kids Fishing Derby will be celebrating its 69th year anniversary on June 4th 2023. This public event encourages kids 14 years old and younger to enjoy a fun-filled day outdoors, getting to catch fish. This event will take place at the Bucktail Rod and Gun Club Pond in Sizer Run. The Derby will run from 1:00PM to 4:00PM and prizes will be drawn throughout the day for those that have registered. This event is live bait ONLY, as the use of artificial lures is prohibited due to safety reasons. There will be bait available at a cost from Pratts East End Beverage. Each child is permitted to catch three (3) fish and no catch and release is permitted.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day for registered youth at the concession stand under the pavilion, and registered youth can enjoy refreshments and snacks with allotted concession tickets. While the derby prizes will conclude at 4pm on June 4th, kids are encouraged to continue fishing the Bucktail Pond through June 20. The pond will be closed to adults during that time. The Drum and Henry Kids Fishing Derby is made possible by the financial help of several individuals, local businesses and the Emporium Foundation.
