The 20th annual Kids Fishing Contest sponsored by the Friends of the Pascack Brook will be held on Saturday, April 21 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine.
The Friends of the Pascack Brook are hosting the 20th annual Kids Fishing Contest on Saturday, April 21. Commemorative t-shirts are being sold to help support the event. George Kritzler is pictured here modeling the shirt that features a camouflage pattern. Shirts can be purchased in advance; any remaining shirts will be available for purchase on the day of the contest.
All children between the ages of 4 and 16 are invited to fish the Pascack Brook between St. John R.C. Church in Hillsdale and Brookside Place in Westwood.
There is no advanced registration or fee. In order to compete for trophies, prizes and other awards, all trout caught the day of the contest should be measured and recorded at the police booth in Hillsdale during contest hours.
All club-tagged fish caught will be awarded prizes during contest hours only.
T-shirts commemorating the 20th anniversary of the event are available for purchase at $20 each. To purchase one, call Fred Winkler at 201 664 9010 or Neil Hering at 201 664 2793.
Any child who wants to help stock the brook with fish should be accompanied by an adult and meet in the parking lot of St. John R. C. Church at 7 a.m. or the ball field by Brookside Place in Westwood at 7 a.m. the day of the contest. It would help to bring a clean spackle bucket to help stock with.
