1300 Fishermen Flock to Annual Trout Derby

Wow! I had no idea. May need to schedule a road trip next year. Looks a little crazy (& crowded), but fun.

The 12th annual Trout Derby is being held this weekend by the Chambersburg Noontime Lion's Club.

The club says more than 1300 people from all over the country are participating. Contestants young and old can win big prizes just by catching fish. The group says there are more than 600 money fish with payouts ranging from $25 to $2,000. A new 2009 Mercury Mariner Hybrid is also among the prizes.

Doug Harmon, the chair of the Lion’s Club, said, "The largest fish is the big trout, and this year it's worth $2000, and we break that out in a 60-30-10 take for three people." The Lion’s Club has been around for more than 80 years, and helps tackle problems such as blindness, drug abuse, and diabetes.

The event ends Sunday evening.

Stony Creek Anglers 2009 Trout Tournament

I went to the Stony Creek Anglers monthly meeting last week and picked up a flyer for the 12th annual trout tournament. I scanned it and posted below (click each to enlarge).

The tournament will be Saturday & Sunday, April 5th & 6th on Stony Creek, located in the Norristown Farm Park / Norristown State Hospital grounds. It should be a good time, especially for kids. Proceeds go toward the operation of the SCA trout nursery, as well as club-sponsored youth programs.
