The Wellsville Fraternal Order of Police is sponsoring a Fishing Derby for boys and girls ages 6 through 15. The tournament will take place on Saturday, October 20 from 10 AM to 2 PM. Prizes for the most fish caught, the longest fish and the smallest fish caught will be given to winners from three different age groups. The age groups are 6 to 8 year olds, 9 to 12 year olds and 13 to 15 year olds. The derby will be held at Wellsville’s Jim Kenney Marina. There is no entry fee. It’s free! All that is needed is a pole of some sort and good sportsmanship.
The rules state that only one fishing pole is allowed per person. No alcohol, drugs or fire arms are permitted during the derby hours. Every effort will be made to protect the live fish and safely return them to the water. Entry forms must be filled out with a parent or guardian’s signature required. Entry forms are available at the Village schools or can be picked up at the Wellsville Police Dept.
