For all the kids who love to fish-- or who'd love to give it a try. The West Springfield Park and Recreation Department will host the 34th Annual Fishing Derby on Saturday, April 18, 2020, from 7:30am-11:00am at the Upper Reservoir (located at the intersection of Amostown Road and Smyrna Street). The Fishing Derby is open to children 15 years and younger and is generously sponsored by Sullivan Paper Company and Donut Dip Inc. The Derby is free; however, contestants must furnish their own equipment and bait. Trophies will be awarded according to category and age group. Each participant will receive a "goodie bag." Also, participants can register for a drawing of some neat prizes such as fishing rods, reels, and tackle boxes. A concession stand will be available. Proceeds to benefit future Park and Recreation programming.
