Long Lake Kids Fishing Derby Wrap Up

kids long lake fishing derby

The Long Lake Kids Fishing Derby was held in Long Lake, New York on Saturday, June 5, 2021. The event was staged at the Long Lake causeway overlooking Jennings Park Pond.  Over 46 children through age 15 registered for the event.  Jennings Park Pond had been stocked by the Long Lake Fish and Game Club and Town of Long Lake with trout provided by Avery’s Fish Hatchery.  In addition to the rainbow and brook trout two Golden Trout were stocked as part of the coveted catch.

A variety of sunfish, perch and trout were weighed in by Garrett Clark. Master of Ceremonies and Fish and Game Club volunteer Jimmy Waite and his trusty assistant Louie the Lobster were happy to get back to business collecting prizes and coordinating the event.  Jim Waite garnered over $800 in prizes and  donations from businesses in the community.  Volunteers Jim Swedberg and Marty Furlong handled bbq duties serving up hot dogs and hamburgers to all the participants. Bruce Jennings helped get the grill and tent to the staging area provided by Another Paradise Cove.
