We have teamed up with the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association to host a Fishing Derby.

All ages can fish but if you are 16 or older you must register (FOR FREE) with the NJ Saltwater Recreational Registry Program at http://www.state.nj.us/dep/saltwaterregistry/.

If you are 15 years old or under you don't need to register

The Hudson River Fishermen’s Association is supplying the bait and tackle and there will be volunteers to help with baiting hooks and teaching how to cast a fishing line.

The derby will take place on Sat., Nov. 4 (Rain Date Sun., Nov. 5) from 10 am to 2:00 pm at Riverside Park, 24 Industrial Avenue, Ridgefield Park behind the Village's DPW building.
