Concordia will provide bait, a few fishing rods to borrow (attendees should bring their own if they have one), hot dogs and refreshments, prizes and parking – all free of charge. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteers will be on hand to help measure fish, detangle fishing lines, teach the basics and anything else that may come up. A tent will be set up with some tables and chairs for those in need of some shade. Guests should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets, if interested.
Last year’s event drew more than 600 guests. Since Lake Saxony is fully stocked and private, kids have a good chance of catching something. Hundreds of blue gills, bass and catfish were caught (and released), some over 12 inches.
Registration is requested to help with planning, but walk-ins will be accepted. To RSVP, visit www.concordialm.org/events-news/fishingderby2016. You can also call Concordia Public Relations at 724-352-1571, ext. 8268 for more information.
