Clyde K. Gibson Fishing Derby

Saturday, May 4, 2019

This event is named in memory of Clyde Gibson, a Mount Airy Lions Club member, who passed away in 2010 and ran this event for 17 years. The contest is open to participants from the tri-county area from ages 2 - 15 years of age. No license is required for the event. Younger children should be accompanied by a parent or someone who can help safely bait the hook and remove fish from the hook. The general policy is that all fish are returned to the pond. A week prior to the event, the Maryland Dept of Natural Resources will stock the pond. The species of fish will be posted days before the event. Prizes are awarded for the fisherman who lands the biggest fish in length, second biggest fish in length, smallest in length, and the most combined total weight of fish caught. Each child should bring their own pole, fishing gear, and large bucket to hold their live catch.The Lion's Club will have refreshments available for all participants.
