Gone Fishin' -- Rockwood Park Fishing Derby

29-May-2013

By popular demand, the City of Saint John is bringing back the Rockwood Park Fishing Derby at Fisher Lakes. City staff decided to sponsor the derby after a number of requests from the public.

“On June 2, the lake will be ready to go,” said Emilie Murphy, the park naturalist. “The derby is a tradition we just had to bring back.”
The event will run from 10 am to 2 pm at Fisher Lakes.

There are six categories:
•    biggest Perch (16& under) (5 & under)
•    biggest Sunfish (16 & under) (5 & under)
•    biggest Trout (16 & under) (5 & under)
There is no license required for the day of the derby.
