April 5 & April 12, 2014
Deer Lake Scout Reservation, 101 Paper Mill Rd., Killingworth, CT
Scouts fish from 8:00 am – 11:00 am
(Signaled by the roar of a fire breathing, smoke belching dragon)
Adults fish from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
For the price of $17 you will get a hearty pancake breakfast with sausage and a beverage, a morning of fishing with a two-trout limit and a commemorative event patch. Prizes will be awarded to the first 75 youths who catch two trout prior to 11:00 a.m. A special drawing will be held at 11:30 for the derby winners.
Breakfast will be available for $5 to anyone who wants to participate but not fish. For a small extra fee, a hamburger/hot dog lunch will be available from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. Bait and lures will be sold on site for your convenience. All you need to do is bring your fishing pole and join the fun.
Camping reservations must be made separately, at an additional charge, using the online reservation system available at ctyankee.org.
Cub Scout/Webelos participants may use this opportunity to earn the Fishing Belt Loop or work on requirements for the Fishing Sports Pin. Fishing and Fly-Fishing merit badge classes will be available for Boy Scouts. (To get more information and register for merit badge classes, go to ctyankee.org.) Additionally, there will be games and challenges for kids, fish cleaning, osprey sightings, and fly-tying demonstrations all day long.
