The City of Pittsfield Conservation Commission, in conjunction with Lyon Aviation, will sponsor a free fishing derby for youth ages 14 and under on Saturday, May 7 at Wild Acres (rain or shine), South Mountain Road, Pittsfield.
The derby will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m. Volunteer support will be provided by the Onota Fishing Club to assist with dressing fish, providing fishing tips and techniques, baiting, and more. Bait will be provided, and a limited amount of fishing poles will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis for use that day.
Trophies will be awarded in various age groups to those who catch the largest fish (length and weight).
Those who may need accommodations for handicapped vehicle access are asked to contact 413-770-2766. Instructions will be provided on how such vehicles can park adjacent to the pond area.
For more information, contact Becky Manship at 499-9370.
