Concordia to Host Fishing Derby for Kids at Saxony Farm

Jefferson Twp., PA – Concordia Lutheran Ministries will host a free fishing derby for kids 14 and under on Saturday, May 30 from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Saxony Farm Estate in Saxonburg.

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.

There will be volunteers 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 close to 400 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 You can also call Concordia Public Relations at 724-352-1571, ext. 8268 for more information.
