Gone Fishin' -- Rockwood Park Fishing Derby


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.
