Youth ice fishing derby is Friday

MONMOUTH — The fifth annual youth ice fishing derby on Cochnewagon Pond will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21.

This will be the largest kids-only (age 4 to 12) ice fishing derby in the state this year. At least 300 kids are expected with all their parents, for 600-plus people on the lake for the day. Everything is free for the kids: free food, free bait, free registration and more.

A drawing will be held for a complete ice fishing package as well as a lifetime fishing license for a couple lucky registrants.

Maine Inland Fisheries stocks more than 300 good-sized brook trout for the day so the kids have plenty of fish to catch. The event is designed as an introduction to ice fishing and intended to make the children lifetime fishermen/women.
