Our youth fishing derby is held each year in early-to-mid May on the grounds of the club which is situated along an Exeter town reservoir. This is the largest youth event of the year at the club, and as many as 200 children aged 15 and under participate.
A couple days before the derby, the club and NH Fish & Game stock the reservoir with a couple truck loads of fish, many of them from local Trout in the Classroom programs.
The event starts bright and early at 6:00AM with check- in and free pancake breakfast for participants. Fishing is from 7:00AM – 10:00 AM and the distribution of Awards & Prizes Starts at 10:30 AM.
The event is open to all children age 15 or under (children entering the derby may NOT have reached their 16th birthday prior to the date of the fishing derby.)
