SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. The Saxtons River Rec Area will hold its annual fishing derby Saturday, May 6, at the ponds on Pleasant Valley Road.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m, and fishing will start at 8:30 a.m.

Adults are responsible for providing their children with all the gear, bait, and assistance needed while at the derby. Participants and families will be required to leave the derby once their age group’s session has ended unless there is a sibling in the next age group.

Donations towards expenses will be accepted at the derby, and volunteers of all ages are welcome to contact, or to get in touch through the Saxtons River Rec Facebook page.


Correction: a previous version of this article stated that the fishing times would be staggered by age-group. This is not the case. All children will register at 8 a.m., and fish at 8:30 a.m.
