Kids’ fishing derby at Lake Attitash Saturday Aug 9

Join the fun at the Lake Attitash Kids’ Fishing Derby, Saturday, August 9, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, with weigh-in at the state boat ramp in Merrimac from 11 a.m. to noon.

Registration is not required. The derby is being run by the Lake Attitash Association.

Prizes for the longest fish and for the heaviest fish will be awarded in two age groups: 12 and under and 13 to 16.

A lake resident has asked the association to request participants to try to keep bass and pickerel alive by putting them in water-filled coolers or live wells so they can be released back into the lake after weigh-in.
