  • Equipment will be provided for those that don't have their own, but if you have your own please bring it along.
  • We will have lots of bait (worms).
  • Fish cleaning is available at no charge.  Typically each child can take home three rainbow trout for dinner.
  • Four fishing ponds will be set up, providing lots of shoreline for fishing.
  • We suggest you park at the Aquarium and walk on the paved path (not the road) down to the ponds.
  • The aquarium and gift shop will be open during (and for a short while after) the event.
  • Every participant will have to register (by signing one simple form).  You can speed up the process by printing and signing your form at home and bringing it with you.  The form is available here:  https://www.friendsofgavinspointfishhatchery.com/fishing-derby
  • Meet some of our amphibians and reptiles from the aquarium collection at a display table near the ponds.
