Kids Fishing Derby of 2021 and 100 Fish!

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 and over 100 fish were caught.  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.

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!
