Usually members of the Fish & Game Club will set up a community fishing hole for folks who don’t have all the necessary equipment to drill a good hole. Check in at registration to find out where to go. Normally they will to set up a walkable spot near the Causeway/spillway with parking available at the Long Lake Town Beach. Check with an official. Other available access to the lake includes the State Boat Launch at the end of Olivet Road. Live Bait is available at the Adk Trading Post and Hoss’s Country Corner.
Prize money is presented to the first three largest fish in three categories to the adult/child team which catches them. The object is for the child to actually do the fishing with the encouragement and instructions from the adults. While not everyone has this kind of luck, the children often surprise everyone with big catch!
