North Branch Trout Derby Association is proud to be hosting our 15ᵗʰ year Derby Day Event!
Our programs success continues with the dedication of our group of volunteers. Whether it is maintaining the property, making improvements, or holding fund raisers. Weekends throughout the spring are when our major projects are completed.
Our last derby event provided a fishing experience for over 300 children, with over 1,300 people in attendance. Children’s prizes, giveaways and raffles totaled approximately $10,000.00. We also stock the pond with 1000 fish for the day of the event, the fish range in size from 11-24 inches.
This year we have added “tagged Fish” to award the lucky anglers with additional prizes. We will also have trophy sized trout added to our stocking order.
Additional derby day activities beyond fishing to include an Obstacle Course, Mountain Man Exhibit, and Quality Deer Management Association will be present for our guest to learn the behaviors of deer and how they age.
We will also have the Pa Game Commission present to discuss Bear Management and possibly have a newly trapped bear on hand for the kids to see.
Special Needs and Veterans fishing day will be held on Sunday May 19ᵗʰ, 2024. NBTDA members are in full attendance for assisting our guests. We also provide lunch free of charge for our anglers and their families.
October is our Youth Pheasant Hunt; this popular event is open to boys and girls between 12–16 years old. They must have successfully completed the hunter safety course. A parent or guardian must accompany their child during the hunt. A trained hunting dog and handler accompanies each group of two hunters.
We ask for your support in the form of a monetary donation, materials for our projects, gift baskets or gift cards that we would raffle off Derby Day.
The North Branch Trout Derby Association advances the common good by promoting and encouraging outdoor recreation for children and young adults and to broaden their horizons through informal education of our natural environment.
