New Germany State Park Fishing Rodeo

The 2011 Fishing Rodeo, a free fishing challenge open to children ages 4-15, will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday May 21 at New Germany State Park.

“The Fishing Rodeo is a great opportunity for kids to learn and enjoy the sport of fishing in a pressure-free environment,” said Ranger Luke Mongrain of New Germany State Park. “To encourage beginners, a limited supply of fishing equipment will be available for loan during the event.”

Prizes will be awarded for the longest fish caught in three age groups: 4-6, 7-11 and 12-15. Door prizes, hot dogs and soda will be provided by the Friends of New Germany. Other sponsors include the Grantsville Lions and the Grantsville Rotary Club.

During the rodeo, fishing will be restricted to children 15 and under, with limited adult assistance. Boating will not be permitted.
